The North West province in South Africa, features premier wildlife destinations, among them the Pilanesberg Game Reserve and the Madikwe Game Reserve; parts of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Vredefort Dome and the Taung Fossil Site, part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site); and the world-famous Sun City gaming and entertainment resort.
“The Volcano that gave birth to a game reserve”
Everyone wants to see the Big Five at least once in their lifetimes. You can see the Big Five just two hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria in one of the country’s most popular wildlife areas set in an ancient volcanic crater – Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
The landscape was formed over a billion years ago, when overflowing magma shaped the area. The explosive turbulence expelled all sorts of interesting rock formations and rare minerals. Geology buffs will be interested to find red, white, green and Ledig foyaite, nepheline syenite, kimberlite, fluorite and uranium tuff.
An abundance of wildlife prosper in 580 km of diverse and striking bushveld terrain.
The park is home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo, otherwise known collectively as Africa’s “Big Five”. You will also see a wide variety of both rare and common species, like the nocturnal brown hyena, the majestic sable, giraffe, hippo’s and the fastest land animal in the world; the cheetah, to name but a few.
The Black Rhino Game Reserve is a relatively unknown Reserve that lies completely within the Pilanesberg National Park, only 30 kilometres from Sun City. The Black Rhino Reserve itself is just less than 2 000 hectares in size and is the first extension to be incorporated into the Pilanesberg National Park.
