Full Day Pilanesberg Safari for a group of 6 people!

Full Day Pilanesberg Safari for a group of 6 people!

www.tentedadventures.com/pilanesberg/

Only 2,5 โ€“ 3 hours from Johannesburg, in the North West Province, lies the Pilanesberg National Park. As a transitional zone between the arid dryness of the Kalahari and the wet Lowveld vegetation, the Pilanesberg encompasses grassy plains, rocky outcrops, wooded valleys and some breath-taking dams. Itโ€™s unique placement โ€“ in a volcanic crater created over 12 million years ago from overflowing magma, and as a transitional zone โ€“ means that it is home to virtually all of the animal species native to Southern Africa, including the Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros and buffalo), wild dog and more than 360 species of bird. Because of its relatively small size and because of its ecological richness, guests have an increased chance of experiencing the Big Five in their natural habitat.
