Pilanesberg NP Sightings

On beforehand, we were quite sceptic about good sightings, because the park has been laid out relatively recent. After several visits, we had to admit however, that our objections were totally unfair. Pilanesberg is very beautiful with lots of game! Bird lovers will also have a great time there; the park counts 300 species!

Before we enter a park we always “bet” on what animal we’ll spot first. Generally, the one wins, who bets on a common animal like an impala or a similarly usual animal. Imagine the surprise of our first spot in Pilanesberg : the carcass of a Zebra, with a lion on top of it!

Thoughts about Pilanesberg

This beautiful park is located a little more than a 3 hours drive from Johannesburg.

Just like adjacent Sun City (the South African Las Vegas), Pilanesberg originates from 1979.

Approximately 6000 animals were released in this former crater of a volcano, measuring more or less 600 km2. And because of the good mix of prey and predator, their numbers have stayed rather stable and have even increased a little.
