Pilanesberg Outing

After seeing how beautifully the summer rains transformed the Marakele National Park, we made some hasty plans for a day visit to the Pilanesberg National Park the following weekend. The Pilanesberg Mountains are the concentric remains of an ancient volcano and was transformed from farmland to a wildlife haven in the 1980’s. You’re welcome to click on the first image in the gallery and scroll through the photo’s to join us on our drive through the Pilanesberg.

    What a fantastic day visit that was and I so enjoyed sharing it through your photos.. You had some lovely sightings and your photos are special. Joubert took some gorgeous shots too – especially of the birds.

    Sjoe, die wereld in die Pilansberg is mooi geil (en so baie water)! Daardie ou klein olifantjie is pragtig. En wat ‘n mooi foto van die Impala deur Joubert (dit lyk letterlik of hy poseer vir ‘n foto 😉). Hier is soveel mooi foto’s … dankie vir die deel!

      Pilanesberg really is a very interesting place, Sue. Its recent and pre-historic history, its geology, its wildlife. And close enough to the city to make an easy day trip of a visit.
