5 Things to See Whilst Visiting Pilanesberg National Park

By  |  0 Comments

Set within the crater of an ancient volcano – Pilanesberg National Park is a relatively small park which really maximises your chances of seeing one of the big 5 animals on your safari. Although the inspiration for taking a safari is always about nature and the big game animals you can see, completely in their natural habitat – roaming free – there are other exciting and exhilarating things you do on a safari around Pilanesberg.

Hot Air Balloon Flight

The balloon travels with the wind, and apart from the occasional firing of the burner, in tranquil silence, enabling the pilot to track herds of antelope and elephant by stealth. It is also an unbeatable way to spot crocodile, who can be difficult to see from the ground. The views, and the experience itself, are spellbinding. Flights start early in the morning, last for an hour, and conclude with a glass of sparkling wine and then a delicious breakfast at a nearby restaurant.

Animal Conservation

Elephants – Cheetahs
Learn more about the work of animal rescue projects on a private visit, where you can get really close to these wonderful creatures during their rehabilitation

Cape Town

A spectacular coastal city with unparalled views of Table Mountain – Cape Town is an absolute “Must See” on any visit to Southern Africa. This cosmopolitan city has endless offerings of seafood restaurants, wine supping opportunities and cultural sightseeing visits. You can even visit the penguins on Boulder Beach

Victoria Falls

The largest and certainly most awe inspiring natural waterfall in the world – these majestic falls have to be seen to be beheld. You would regret it for a very long time if you missed the opportunity to see these in person.


South Africa is home to some of the finest vineyards and vintages in the world. Pinot Noir is a must try on a visit to the Stellenbosch region where you can stay in your own private villa and visit the vineyards, learn about the process and of course, enjoy the produce.

Sun City

The best way to experience the intrepid adventures of the safari holiday would be to do a dual centre trip – where you spend your first week in the safari lodge and the 2nd week going from Sun City to Stellenbosch and then onto Cape Town. Sun City is a luxury casino and resort and adds a glamourous edge to your holiday and with two world class golf courses you can be sure everyone will find something to do.
