Basic Pilanesberg National Park


Enjoy an incredible 3 Day/2 Night African bush adventure in the Pilanesberg National Park. Pilanesberg is a “Big 5” (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino & Buffalo) Game Reserve situated in close proximity to Johannesburg and Pretoria. This makes it ideal for short or longer trips, or, to be combined with one of our other tour options. For these tours we use the chalets in Golden Leopard’s Manyane or Bakgatla Resorts. Chalets are equipped with private ablution facilities.

These tours are basic and unstructured, but incredible fun. They are an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Your tour includes four Game Drives. Two of these are done in an open safari vehicle, and two from a closed air-conditioned vehicle.

    Yes we do. All our tours including a tailor made tour can be taken as a self drive option. Transport and guide related costs would be excluded.

    When is the best time to visit South Africa?

    • South Africa generally has a temperate sub-tropical climate with warm to hot summers and moderate to cold winters. With the exception of the south western parts of the Western Cape Province (Cape Town area) we have most of our rain in the summer months (November to February). Other factors such as the return of migratory bird species or the annual sardine run may be of interest to you. We recommend that you contact us and discuss your interests.

    Why do you not show exact pricing?

    • There are many factors to consider when costing a tour. We believe that we can give you better value if we take your circumstances and personal preferences into account.

    Can we bring Children?

    • Yes, in child friendly resorts. Most Wildlife resorts do not allow children under twelve years of age on open safari vehicles. Children over the age of twelve are usually considered as adults. Please contact us to confirm the child policy of the different resorts.

    Can we combine two or more of your tours?

    • Yes, tours can be customised to your taste and preferences. Domestic air travel may become necessary at an additional cost.

    Can we request a specific destination?

    • Most definitely yes. We can draw up a customised itinerary for you.

    Are your tour activities suitable for senior citizens?

    • Please advise us of senior citizens in your group when requesting a quote. We will ensure that all activities are suitable for them.

    Do you cater for people with special dietary requirements?

    • Please advise us of special dietary requirements when requesting a quote.

    You only give an indication of price for 4, 6 and 8 adults sharing double accommodation. What happens if we are a larger group?

    • We cater for groups of all sizes. The pricing on the website is merely an indication of what to expect. Please contact us for a quote.

    Do you cater for disabled tourists?

    • That is dependent on the nature of the disability. We are not in a position to give specialised care at this point in time. Please contact us to discuss this.

    What about malaria?

    • The high risk malaria area in South Africa is generally confined to the north-eastern regions. We would however strongly recommend that you consult a health care professional on this matter prior to coming to South Africa. Anti-Malaria medication usually reduces the risk considerably. Other measures such as insect repellents can also be effective.

    How do we pay you?

    • Use the payment function on this website.
