Each season in the African bush has it's own secrets and beauty - 

  • Spring (September to November) for its budding grasses and leaves on the trees, not to mention the baby antelopes
  • Summer (December to February) for the green green scenery, colourful birdlife and summer thunderstorms
  • Autumn (March to May) for the days are still warm enough to laze around the pool and the scenery takes on that reddish tinge to the leaves of the tamboti trees
  • Winter (June to August) for the crisp mornings and the easier game spotting, especially near watering holes, and having a boma fire at night to cuddle up next to

Average StayAverage Stay

We recommend a minimum 2 night stay which includes 4 vehicle safaris. This gives a better chance of seeing the big 5 animals and the various scenic aspects of the Black Rhino Reserve as well as the Pilanesberg National Park. If you would like to sleep in one morning, or do an early morning walking safari we recommend staying an extra night or two.

Children PolicyChild Policy

The rules governing game drives in the North West Province do not permit children under the age of 6 years on the game drives for their own safety. If you would like we can arrange a baby sitter to look after them at an hourly rate, and then in the morning when possible after breakfast we take them out on their very own game drive for about 30 minutes to see what we can see at a safe distance. Children between 6 and 12 years are permitted to join the adult game drives at the ranger's discretion.
