The Landscape

Spectacular landscape

Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.

The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Standing above the surrounding bushveld, the park unfolds colourful hues and panoramas - a delight for photographers and guests.

Short of time?

For those short business visits to South Africa's economic hub, Gauteng, the Pilanesberg & Madikwe Game Reserves offer the ideal opportunity to view the Big 5 when time is lacking to visit game reserves such as the Kruger National Park, which are further away.

When to go

Summers can get hot, but visitors will enjoy Pilanesberg all year round.
