Set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, the Pilanesberg National Park, ranks amongst the largest of the parks in South Africa and covers an area of some 55 000 hectares. The Park offers guests sightings of a wide diversity of animal and plant life. This includes 360 species of birds, the Big Five and many other South African animals. Operation Genesis, which involved the game fencing of the reserve and the reintroduction of endemic species, began during the late1970s.
The Park exists within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as "Bushveld". Unlike any other large park, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone. Springbok, brown hyena, the red eyed bulbul, and camel thorn trees usually found in arid areas are found cohabiting with moist-area-limited impala, black-eyed bulbul and Cape chestnut trees. The Park has a rich array of southern African wildlife including the Big Five and many of the animal species found in southern Africa.
These include lions, elephants, white and black rhinos, buffaloes, leopards, zebras, hyenas, giraffes, hippos and crocodiles. The diversity of bird life is excellent with in excess of 360 species. Though some are migrants, many are permanent inhabitants. Their food sources vary with some eating carrion or live prey, while others eat seeds, fruit or tiny water organisms.
