Home to an array of Africa’s big game including the celebrated Big 5, the Pilanesberg National Park offers some of the best game viewing opportunities in South Africa.
You can choose between self-drive wildlife excursions or guided tours from well-informed, friendly rangers who provide interesting information about the animals and area.
If you would like to get a closer look at nature while on foot, you can explore one of the many hiking trails surrounding the beautiful hideaway in the Pilanesberg under the direction of an experienced guide. Be sure to wear suitable clothing including comfortable shoes and a hat, as the African sun is known for its ferocity during the summer months.
Bird watching is almost as popular as game viewing in the Pilanesberg with approximately 360 bird species on display for the avid bird watcher.
An on-site restaurant offers delicious buffet-style dining for guests at the Bakgatla Resort. The breakfast buffet in particular is very popular with an à la carte menu also available for guests seeking something different.
Sunday lunch is served by means of a full buffet with all the traditional trimmings and braai (BBQ) facilities are available to guests wanting to relax around the fire.
If you prefer to make your own food, you can make use of the self-catering facilities offered by selected accommodation options. A well-stocked and reasonably priced superette is available for the purchasing of basic items such as bread, milk and sugar.
