Pilanesberg National Park February 2016
My family and I have been going to Pilanesberg Game Reserve annually for over 25 years and every year we have amazing new experiences. In the 1980s Operation Genesis introduced nearly 6 000 animals of 19 different species into the reserve which is situated in the ecologically rich transition zone between the Kalahari and the Lowveld. At the time it was the largest game translocation in the world, and today Pilanesberg is teeming with game and birds.
And although the drought has hit it hard this year, it’s still a spectacular destination.
