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.

A beautiful park with diverse landscapes, fauna and flora. The park has all the animals of the Big 5. Lots of animals in this park, especially around the water holes. There are many opportunities to take great photos and to observe nature and the animals. If you love nature and road trips this is definitely for you. The roads are partly in bad condition better you must use an SUV. Definitely recommended!
I enjoy trying to find the big 5 but sadly didn't get to see them all. If I knew about the app which tells you where to find them it would have been great. Still great to be out in nature.
