Pilanesberg Private Lodge
"Pilanesberg National Park"
The lodge is situated in the Black Rhino Private Reserve. This brand new reserve forms part of the Greater Pilanesberg National Park. The size of the park is in the extent of 57 000 hectares. Black Rhino Reserve is situated in the North Western corner of the Pilanesberg National Park (PNP). It is just under 2000 hectares in size and is the first portion of private land that was incorporated into the PNP.
The idea is to incorporate all the land between PNP and the Madikwe Game Reserve to form the “Heritage Park” that will be in the extent of 300 000 hectares.
We enjoy traversing across the entire park ( 57 000 hectares) in our open game vehicle. The vegatation is predominantly sweetveld and it compliments the sourveld and mixed veld of the park. We have the priveledge to see the Buffalo on regular occasions as they have taken shelter in the more remote areas that is not accesable to any other visitor to the park.
The reserve is charactirized by huge number of Tambotie trees and therefore we have regular sightings of the bad tempered Black rhino. The reserve is entered exclusively through our private entrance gate on the westen side of the reserve.
The reserve is home to the BIG 5 (Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, White and Black Rhino) as well as Cheetah and Wild dog. Antelope species include sable, tsessebe, eland, gemsbok and springbok.
With a species list of over 354, the black rhino reserve is a true “birders paradise”.
The Pilanesberg Private Lodge is a private retreat nestled on the foot of the majestic Pilanesberg Mountains. The Lodge is uniquely situated within a 2 hour drive from Johannesburg / Pretoria, within a 20 minute drive from Sun City and is situated in a MALARIA FREE area. This lodge is uniquely positioned in a part of the Pilanesberg National Park wilderness area that has previously not been accessible to any visitors.
Our guests enjoy nothing but spectacular views of world Famous “Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex”.
The lodge was designed to incorporate the views to ensure that even when you are not on game drives, you stand the chance to see any of the animals from the lodge.
Elephant, Rhino (Black and white) , Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Eland and the endangered African Wild Dog have been spotted from the lodge in the last few months. During the evenings we enjoy fabulous stargazing from our boma as the light in the area is very clean and clear.
We have 5 sleeping units that is connected via paved pathways and bridges to the communal area. The units are named Leopard, Tambotie, Shepherds Tree, Rhino and Elephant.
