3 Day Pilanesberg Safari & Bushwalk

A camping safari and bush walk at Pilanesberg is a simple but highly enjoyable way to experience South Africa. Pilanesberg National Park is the result of a long extinct volcano. The crater, which holds the park, is millions of years old and is a very unique feature. As a result, this attracted a wide variety of birds and animal species to which it now calls home. This includes the BIG 5 as well as cheetah, giraffe, hippo, hyena, jackal and a number of antelope and bird species.

DAY 1

Depart for the Park

We depart Johannesburg (Pretoria) at 07:30 for the park. The drive is a mere 2.5 hours and on arrival we take 30 minutes to set up our camping area before we go hunting for the big 5! Lunch will be at a picnic spot within the park. We can relax but still enjoy the peacefulness of nature around us. We'll return to camp for a brief rest if the heat of the day is too much before departing for an afternoon drive once again. Dinner this evening will be at the restaurant. Read more

DAY 2

Early Morning Game Drive

We hit the ground running on day 2 at 05:30 with coffee and biscuits before departing for a sunrise game drive. We return to camp for a hearty breakfast and some leisure time. Today we will have the opportunity of visiting the Sun City resort if desired (entry at additional cost). If you prefer we can just head out again and take in as much game viewing as possible. Late afternoon will provide us the best time to see the variety of plant and animal life out and about. When we return to camp your guide will either prepare a South African style braai (barbecue) or dinner will again be in the restaurant. Read more

DAY 3

Highlight Bush Walk

The highlight of the tour starts this morning as we book you onto a guided morning bush walk with 2 armed rangers. There is no greater safari thrill than getting up close and personal with nature! We'll grab a well deserved mid morning breakfast upon return to camp. We pack up camp and say goodbye as we head back to Johannesburg. Before arriving back we will pop in at one of the various craft markets en route, in case you want a few souvenirs. Tour ends. Read more

Tim and Colleen, United States

Our safari experience exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Doug, was fantastic. He helped us set up activities that we would enjoy and woke us up in the morning to make sure we'd get to them on time. He was extremely knowledgeable about where, when, and how to look for animals while we were driving around the park. He even helped us find better accommodations in Johannesburg. He was friendly, courteous, and helpful in every way. Highly recommended! Read more

Nic, United Kingdom

There is something said about the African bush, once you visit once you'll want to go back. I couldn't agree more. Our guide, made this an unforgettable experience allowing us to not see just the big five, but introduced us to the little 5 such as the rhino beetle. Never would have known they existed without his knowledge. Not usually one for camping, but loved the real bush experience. Read more

Ross, United Kingdom

We had the most wonderful, authentic bush experience with Adventure Anywhere. To see Cheetah in the wild was really amazing. Every part of our tour was well organised and enjoyable. Our guide, Douglas, was really knowledgeable and made sure that all our needs were taken care of. This was not our first visit to the African bush but certainly the most memorable. Read more
