ABOUT THE PILANESBURG GAME RESERVE
Next door to the famous leisure and entertainment resort of Sun City, is the Pilanesberg National Park.
It may not be very large (550km²) compared to Kruger or some of the other great African parks, but it has a real
wilderness feel to it and most of the big animals you could wish to see. It lies amongst the only significant hills in the
area which rise skywards out of the flat highveld plain. This massif is a 1,200 million-year-old volcanic relic of four
concentric mountain rings.
The Pilanesberg is the highest peak towering 600 metres above Mankwe Lake, which sits in the heart of the ancient
volcano. The volcano's circular bowl was recognised as being the perfect situation for a national park with its tall sides
creating natural boundaries. The area was farmed until 1979 until Operation Genesis was launched to rehabilitate the
land and stock it with game. This was one of the most imaginative game-stocking enterprises ever undertaken and the
Pilanesberg became a great success story. There are currently around 10,000 head of game and it is a very popular
game park for locals and overseas visitors alike - many of whom make the short trip from the nearby resort of Sun City.
ANIMALS & BIRDS
This park is home to good populations of a whole range of Africa's game, including the 'Big Five'; elephants, black and
white rhinoceros, buffaloes, lions and leopards and you will also see giraffes, zebras, hippos and a wide variety of
antelopes including the very attractive sable, eland, kudu and gemsbok. There are also cheetahs and hyenas and jackal.
Birdlife is good with over 300 species and bird lovers will be interested in the huge stroll-through aviary at the
Manyane gate. Also in this area is a 'vulture restaurant' - created to help save the shy and endangered Cape vulture
from regional extinction.
