The choice between Pilanesberg and the Greater Kruger Park for safari is a difficult one. It really all depends on how much time you have.
That’s because it is only a two-hour drive from Johannesburg and generally the game viewing is excellent when you have limited time.
It is a public park so the roads are good and there are always other private cars driving around, especially on weekends. No off road driving is allowed in Pilanesberg.
