3 Day Pilansberg Camping Safari 

The 3 Day Pilansberg Camping Safari offers a short safari adventure to the 55 000ha Pilansberg National Park which covers the entire area of an extinct volcano that erupted millions of years ago and has become South Africa’s fourth largest game reserve that hosts all of the Big 5. Only 3 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, the Pilansberg National park has become a wildlife mecca that rivals the Kruger National Park.

Your Adventour guide will never guarantee sighting of the Big 5, but you will be treated to a true African Safari experience.
