Spend the day visiting the popular Pilanesberg National park on a closed vehicle game drive conducted by a Spurwing Guide. The fourth largest game reserve in South Africa, spanning over 50’000 hectares on mixed terrain ranging from low lying bushveld to savannah to the mountains of the Pilanesberg, hence the name.
The park is malaria free and lies right within the same extinct volcanic crater as Sun City.
The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets. Pilanesberg National Park accommodates virtually every mammal of Southern Africa. An abundance of wild life proliferates in 580 square kilometers of diverse and arresting bushveld terrain. The park is home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo – Africa’s “Big Five”.
A wide variety of rare and common species exist like the nocturnal brown hyena, the fleet-footed cheetah, the majestic sable, as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodile, to mention but a few. Visitors are offered the opportunity to either self-drive with our driver in a closed vehicle or alternatively transfer into an open game vehicle driven by professional guides that operate within the park.
On this tour guests will be met at the reception of their hotel and we will start the tour.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve Day Tour Reviews
The tour guy was very good. Very happy and welcoming. He made me feel very comfortable and safe. If I go again with my family I will try to go again with the same tour guy.
It was well worth the money ! Our driver was friendly and knew the game park very much. I did not expect Pilanesberg to be so large and full of wild animals. We saw almost all "big fives". Because of the high grass and hot temperature we could not see lions but we were happy to be there nonetheless.
Our experience with this travel agency was absolutely positive and would recommend to others.
It was a very nice game reserve tour. We could see a lot of animals like elephants, rhinos, girafes. I would book this tour again.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and a caring person. Thanks to his persistence, he turned the van around and went back to a road that we had passed earlier and we came upon a lion that had just finished feasting on a kill! Besides the usual herbivores, we saw 3 of the big 5 (lion, rhino, elephant).
It would have been nice to have been aware that we could not buy food/drinks during the game drive.
Our driver, tour guide was amazing. He was farmost a true gentil man. He put his clients first and was the most patient man we have ever had. We will never forget him. He really was on the job 100%. He spotted all those animals like they were his pets.
He really is in his profession. We hope that you will convey this to his personally.
