Venture on a safari ride to Pilanesberg National Park, a large game reserve that is home to the "Big Five" of South Africa's large mammals--the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and rhinoceros. Opt for either a self-driving or a guided tour of the park, which sits in the crater of an ancient extinct volcano and hosts hundreds of animal and plant species. You can explore trails on foot, visit a bird park, or have a picnic. Facilities in the park include private lodges and campsites. The park houses most of the mammals indigenous to the country, so watch for black and white rhinos, leopards, lions, hippos, antelope, and numerous other animals.

It was a lot of fun to experience the vast Africa. Because it is not a zoo, it is recommended though it is as long as it is lucky to see anything. I visited in August, but it is winter, so the grass is cut and the animals are easy to find. However, i went around in the afternoon in an open safari car, but it was very cold when the wind started to fall because the wind hit directly. Windbreakers and sweaters are required. I want to go around with it next time because it seems to be able to go around by the private car.
