Pilanesberg Day Safaris

The Best Big 5 Day Safari from Johannesburg

A Pilanesberg Day Safari is ideal to explore the big five African bush on a limited time schedule. Only a 2 hour scenic drive northwest of Johannesburg and Pretoria is the Pilanesberg National Park. Pilanesberg covers an area of 57 000 hectares (140 000 acres) that is inhabited by more than 7000 animals in a free and unhindered environment. Pilanesberg is the home of the Big 5 as well as over 360 bird species.

After collecting you at your hotel or residence in Johannesburg between 06h00 and 06h30 or at the time indicated by the consultant, we travel to Pilanesberg. On arrival your guide will take you on an exciting morning open 4x4 vehicle safari drive. Our guides are knowledgeable and will give you in depth information on the wildlife you are viewing. After your open vehicle safari, enjoy a light lunch before your closed vehicle safari through the park. The vehicle will depart the National Park between 15h30 and 16h00 in order to arrive in Johannesburg before sunset.

More About the Pilanesberg Day Safari

The safari is approximately 11 hours, departing Johannesburg 06h30 and returning at 17h30.
Go Safari offer other Pilanesberg Day Safari options - A 5 hour open vehicle safari and a full day closed vehicle safari where we can change the times to suit guests.

Two or three-day safaris can be arranged if you have the time.

This is a Malaria free area.

This is one of the most popular day visits as it offers so much in one day. While it is a lot to take in, it is balanced and spaced out, giving you time to absorb the experience.
