Overview

Johannesburg

Johannesburg is South Africa's biggest city and capital of Gauteng province. We prefer to keep our guests near the airport and not in the city due to safety concerns. It is very easy to travel from Johannesburg to Pilanesberg or Sun city. We recommend enjoying walking with the Lion tour at Lions Park or enjoy Gold Reef City amusement park.

Pilanesberg

Pilanesberg National park is located just 2 - 2.5 hrs drive from Johannesburg city. As it is very convenient to reach this park from Johannesburg, it is very popular among international tourists who wish to have a glimpse of wildlife but have limited time. Pilanesberg National Park is approx 55000 hectares in the area and is almost  40 times smaller than Kruger. But for first-time wildlife seekers who are mainly interested in "Big Five" animals, this is the value for money and practical option. Bakubung lodge is the most preferred lodge in Pilanesberg which is located on the border of the National park and can be reached from Sun city resort complex in just 30 mins.
