Enjoy a wonderful day Safari to the Pilanesberg National Park. You have the option to choose either a safari in an open vehicle or a safari in a closed vehicle. The tour can depart from either Johannesburg and surrounding areas, Sandton or Pretoria for the Pilanesberg National Park. You will be transported safely to the reserve and all points of interest along the way will be pointed out to you by your registered guide. View wild animals in their habitat. The open safari will be conducted in an open safari vehicle with a ranger. The closed safari will be conducted in a closed vehicle by a registered guide. Where other operators decide to save on lunch, on this tour this will not be the case and a premium lunch with a breathtaking view at Bakubung Lodge will be served.


Pilanesberg Safari

Pilanesberg Safari

Pick up is normally at 06:00 am from your hotel. You will be transported safely to Pilanesberg National Park driving through some very scenic areas depending on your pick up location. One such area is the Hartebeestpoort dam area giving you a beautiful view of the Magaliesberg Mountains. If you chose the open vehicle safari option, when you arrive at Pilanesberg National Park you will switch vehicles onto an open vehicle. This is a specially modified pick up truck with seating on the back that makes it an amazing experience to view animals and the scenery of the park from. It also provides great opportunities to take photos up close to animals that inhabit the park. This will be a 3-hour open vehicle safari. Note that the vehicle is open on the sides but it does have a canvas roof to protect you from the sun. After you return from your open safari with your guide, you will be taken to a beautiful bush lodge in the enclosed minibus that transported you to the reserve. On the way to the lodge, you will be given some more opportunity at spotting animals and also be informed of interesting facts by your guide. Once at the beautiful restaurant setting overlooking a watering hole where animals come to drink, you will enjoy a fantastic meal to your heart's content! You will depart the park at around 15:00 and be transported safely back to your hotel to be dropped off at around 18:00.
