“Great safari close to Gauteng cities”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Large game park this close to Johannesburg. We saw three of the big 5 quite easily but missed the cats. Well worth the visit - recommend staying inside the reserve at one of the lodges if possible.

“What an experience”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Could spend a few days just driving around and looking for the huge number of wild animals in the reserve. really excellent loads to look at and to watch for.
We only had half a day and only went a very short distance. Go early and spend the day even stay at lodge within the reserve and start again the next day.

“Loads of animals”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The trackers that take you on the game drive make it so interesting. They are incredibly knowledgeable. We would definitely do it again

“Animal watching and education”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

There hasn't been rain in quite a while and there was a considerable amount of dust. The advantage was that the animals had to congrigate close to the watering holes.

“nice to do”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Because we had bad weather we decided to go to Pilanesburg Game Reserve. We have seen lots of Impala's, Wildebeest and hippo's. It was worth it.
