Pilanesberg National Park Holidays

Game reserve in extinct volcano

Pilanesberg National Park is located west of Pretoria and borders with the Sun City resort. Perched on the eroded remnants of a long-extinct volcanic crater, and fringed by rings of hills, the national park is home to lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, brown hyena, fleet-footed cheetah, zebra, and hippos. 

Float gently over the reserve in a hot air balloon and catch the expansive views at sunrise, before enjoying a Champagne breakfast in the spectacular Bushveld. You'll make life-long memories and gain a completely fresh perspective when you see the extensive, rugged landscape, lush green valleys and diverse wildlife from the sky.
