Set within the crater of an ancient volcano that was formed 1.2 billion years ago, Pilanesberg National Park is just a three hour drive from Johannesburg. Situated between the Kalahari and the Lowveld in an ecologically rich zone, the park is home to the Big Five as well as wild dog, sable antelope and over 360 species of bird. Pilanesberg is malaria-free and is one of South Africa’s most accessible national parks, making it ideal for families. Nearby Sun City has a plethora of activities, with two 18-hole golf courses, a cultural village, casinos and the Valley of the Waves, a water park complete with a beach and water slides.
