Why go there?
The Pilanesberg National Park is located right next to Sun City. It’s a game reserve that is home to the Big Five, and has a wide range of accommodation options, from casual to luxury, so there’s something to suit everyone.
When visiting, take a game drive (on your own or a guided one, whichever you prefer) and have a proper safari experience. You also have the option of going on a walking tour, hanging out at a bird hide or taking a trip to Sun City for the day!
How far is it?
2.5 hours from Joburg.
Best time of year to go?
Pilanesberg is great to visit all year round.
