Pilanesberg National Park

is the fourth largest park in South Africa. Set on 55 000 hectares of pristine unspoiled natural beauty, situated in the North West Province. The area is world famous geologically and its structure, termed the Pilanesberg National Park Alkaline Ring Complex’ was formed by volcanic eruptions some 1 200 million years ago.

The park borders with the entertainment complex Sun City and exists within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as “Bushveld”. Unlike any other large park, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone.

The creation of the Pilanesberg National Park is considered one of the most ambitious programmes of its kind to be undertaken anywhere in the world. The Operation Genesis, which involved the game-fencing of the reserve and the reintroduction of long-vanished species, began during the late 70’s. Including the re-introduction of many long-vanished species, the park now has in excess of 7 000 animals including 24 of the larger species. Also accommodatiog the Big Five (Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard & Rhino), Pilanesberg National Park offers the visitor virtually every mammal of southern Africa.
