More info: Pilanesberg National Park is home to the “Big Five” (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo) as well as a wide range of other species, including Kudu, Springbok, Hippo, Giraffe, Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, Waterbuck and Baboon. More than 360 bird species have been recorded in the area.

The Pilanesberg National Park is located in North West Province in South Africa, west of Pretoria and borders the entertainment complex Sun City and covers 55 000 hectares of rolling plains. The name Kwa Maritane means “ Place of the Rock “ and takes its name from an ancient extinct alkaline volcano which fashioned the very hills that Kwa Maritane Lodge stands on today.

Being on the transition zone of the Kalahari and the Lowveld, Pilanesberg offers a unique mix of fauna and flora. The absence of elephants from the system for over 140 years allowed the mountain cabbage tree to spread through the Pilanesberg. These trees and aloes are sought after by elephants and are now restricted to the highest hills.

The diversity of birdlife in Pilanesberg National Park is excellent with over 360 species having been recorded.
