PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK
About an hour and a half's drive from Johannesburg, through
the former 'homeland' of Bophuthatswana lies the Pilanesberg National Park.
This beautiful and unspoiled park is home to the famous Big 5. We will
arrive in the park at around 8am, and after enjoying a sumptuous
breakfast, we will start our first Game Drive. With some luck we will see
Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino, Leopard and Lion. After lunch at the Pilanesberg
Center, we embark on our second Game Drive for the day.
KRUGERSDORP GAME RESERVE AND LION PARK
The Krugersdorp Game
Reserve lies south west of Johannesburg near the picturesque town of
Krugersdorp. Here you will be able to view some of the 350 bird species,
15 different antelope species, White Rhino and with a little luck Lion,
who are all residents of the park. Even if you don't see lion in the game
reserve, you will most definately get the opportunity to get better
acquainted with these beautiful cats at the Lion Park near Randburg.
