The Pilanesburg Game Reserve is a really great reserve. It is not nearly the size of the Kruger and does not have anything like the variety of animals, birds etc. But if does have the big 5 and a lot of other animal life.
A major advantage is that it is about a 2 hour drive from Johannesburg and right next to Sun City so it is an enjoyable day trip.
Absolutely worth a visit

We had a great Safari - professional guide who was fun and managed to locate the big 5 for us. Our trip was arranged by the staff from the Palace hotel - all worked perfectly.

A fantastic park with a variety of animals, many of which can be seen on a simple drive around the reserve. We saw hippos, rhinos, giraffes, wildebeest, elands, kudus, and more. An amazing experience, and one to which I will definitely return.

Really enjoyed the wide vistas, endless views of rolling landscape, game drive at sunset unbeatable. Didn't see all of the Big Five, but did see lots of really interesting animals.
