Pilanesberg 1 Day Safari

If you are short on time or perhaps you would like a quick insight into what Pilanesberg National Park can offer, the 1 day tour is a great option.

Have you found yourself with a day to spare in the smoke? Or perhaps needing a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Take a timeout in the Pilanesberg National Park with our 1-say tour to explore this Big 5 game reserve and get back in touch with nature.
Pilanesberg National Park is only a 2-hour drive from Johannesburg, which makes it the perfect destination for you to spot some fantastic wildlife and soak in the incredible scenery in just a short space of time.

Climate and Weather conditions
Summer- October to March is when the area sees a significant amount of rainfall. Temperatures are expected to be between 26 °C and 30 °C.

Winter- This is known to be the best time to visit the park. During the period around July to October, animals in the park are easier to spot and spend longer feeding. It is also mating season which is definitely worth seeing. Days are generally warm and clear.
