Pilanesberg National Park

The Pilanesberg Nature Reserve, is located in the North West Province of South Africa and the park borders the entertainment complex of Sun City. The Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex is the park’s main geological feature.

This vast circular geological feature is ancient even by geological standards as it is the crater of a long extinct volcano and the result of eruptions some 1,200 million years ago. It is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its type in the world.

The park has a rich array of southern African wildlife including the Big Five, the five most dangerous game animals in Africa. Over 360 bird species were counted. The Park is Malaria free.
