A Luxurious Bushveld Breakaway

Web Ref #: 564
Price: From R 1670 - R 2225 ppspn, fully inclusive
Location: Pilanesberg National Park

A hidden treasure set amongst the trees of an old Tamboti forest at the foot of an ancient volcanic crater that today comprises one of South Africa’s most exciting Big 5 eco-tourism destinations.


Located in the west side of the ‘Malaria Free’ Pilanesberg National Park, and only 33km from Sun City.


The Lodge is built between a Tamboti forest, overlooking a busy waterhole, which is a hive of bird and animal activity, and a playground for the elephants.


On many occasions, the stillness of the night is broken by the roaring of lions and the franklins sing the morning wake up call.


Once you are awakened with a hot cup of coffee, your host ranger will take you out on an exceptional game drive, taking you through the Reserve, into the unexplored valley of the Pilanesberg, until we reach the 200km network Pilanesberg Park roads.


Game sightings include a variety of predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah. Herds of elephant and buffalo are often seen at close range. Antelope such as sable, kudu and eland roam the bush freely and are not shy. The game and bird viewing opportunities are truly incredible.

Pilanesberg’s natural eco-system exists in a transition zone of the dry Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld. Therefore, unlike any other national game park, the Pilanesberg hosts a combination of animal, bird, insect, reptilian and vegetation species.


Species such as Brown Hyena, Springbok, Red Eyed Bulbul and Camel Thorn tree, normally found in dry areas, co-habitat with Impala, Black Eyed Bulbul and the Cape Chestnut trees, normally found in wetter areas.


A major advantage of the Pilanesberg is that it is ‘Malaria Free’, which is not the case with other game parks further north.


Sun City, best known for hosting the Million Dollar Gold Challenge and other spectacular events, lies on the boarder of the Pilanesberg and is only a 33km drive from the Game Reserve.


The small but busy airfield, flies in clients from the major airports. The main entrance is Manyane Gate, which is a comfortable hour and a half’s drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria.
