Pick up from your hotel in Johannesburg and travel via Hartebeespoort dam and the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains to reach the unique Pilanesberg Game Reserve which is located in the largest volcanic crater of its kind in the world and is home to the Big Five. En-route we make a short detour to a lion breeding station and have the opportunity to play with lion cubs.

We will have lunch at a lodge situated in the reserve itself overlooking a waterhole before venturing into the park for a close encounter with nature. Pilanesberg Game Reserve is situated in a malaria free area and offers one of the best opportunities to view a wide variety of African game in their natural habitat. The area is truly spectacular and being a transition area between bush and semi desert vegetation one sees different species seldom seen in one locality together. Our trained field guide will be able to interpret the majesty and complex interrelationships in nature.
