Transfer 2-hours through rural north west Transvaal to the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
  
After checking into your game lodge, enjoy your first game drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle in this superb Big Five game reserve, uniquely situated inside an extinct volcano. Hopefully see elephants, lions, antelope and a wide variety of other wildlife, before enjoying dinner in your warm African surroundings!
Days 4 To 5
Today is devoted to game viewing in Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
 
Rise early when game viewing conditions are at their best, for an open-top game drive in Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Hope to see several of the Big 5 - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino - as well as many other animals before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or visit neighbouring Sun City, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. Hope to see giraffe, wildebeest, hippo, kudu, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting species. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed.
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
