What is a better way to better explore an area other than roaming and wandering around? Join us on our walk safari and explore Pilansberg like a true adventurer!
A camping safari tour and bush walk at Pilanesberg is a simple but highly enjoyable way to experience South Africa. Pilanesberg National Park is the result of a long extinct volcano. The crater, which holds the Park, are millions of years old and is a unique feature.
As a result, this attracted a wide variety of birds and animal species to which it now calls home. This includes the BIG 5 as well as cheetah, giraffe, hippo, hyena, jackal and some antelope and bird species.Experience a safari tour in one of South Africa's most underrated parks and one of our personal favorites. Our tour guide will be with you along the tour.
We depart Johannesburg (Pretoria) at 07:30 for the park. The drive is a mere 2.5 hours and on arrival, we take 30 minutes to set up our camping area before we go hunting for the big 5! Lunch will be at a picnic spot within the park. We can relax but still enjoy the peacefulness of nature around us. We'll return to camp for a brief rest if the heat of the day is too much before departing for an afternoon drive once again. Dinner this evening will be at the restaurant.
We hit the ground running on day 2 at 05:30 with coffee and biscuits before departing for a sunrise game drive. We return to camp for a hearty breakfast and some leisure time. Today we will have the opportunity of visiting the Sun City resort if desired (entry at additional cost). If you prefer we can just head out again and take in as much game viewing as possible. Late afternoon will provide us the best time to see the variety of plant and animal life out and about. When we return to camp your guide will prepare a South African-style braai (barbecue) as you relax by the camp fire.
The highlight of the tour starts this morning as we book you onto a guided morning bush walk with 2 armed rangers. There is no greater safari thrill than getting up close and personal with nature! We'll grab a well deserved mid-morning breakfast upon return to camp. We pack up camp and say goodbye as we head back to Johannesburg. Before arriving back we will pop in at one of the various craft markets en route, in case you want a few souvenirs. Tour ends.
