Tour Detail


Day 1
Scenic Route to Pilanesberg with Guide

We can collect you anywhere in the Johannesburg Pretoria region including the airport. The journey to Pilanesberg is through some of the most interesting landscapes in South Africa. This is from many perspectives, scenic, historical and economic. We pass through the world's second oldest mountain range, past where mankind's earliest traces can be found and its richest Platinum bearing region and our destination lies in the remains of an ancient volcano, the only one of its kind in Africa. The climate changes from cool "highveld" to warm dry "bushveld" and even in winter when the nights are chill the days are warm and sunny.
We can depart as early as 8.00 am and this will enable you to stop on the way at places like the Elephant Sanctuary, Van Dyk Cheetah Centre, Cradle of Humankind, Ukutula Walk with Lions (extra time charge and entrance fee may apply).
Arrive Shepherd Tree Lodge for lunch and check in. Gather for afternoon tea and depart around 3.00 pm for your sunset safari.


Day 2
Pursue "Big 5" in the Billion Year Old Volcano Landscape

The architecture and design of the lodge is superb and after a night in the clear clean air of the African bush rise refreshed and ready to go with fellow guests and experienced game ranger into the Pilanesberg in pursuit of exciting encounters.
Your ranger will stop for coffee and juices at a safe spot perhaps a waterhole with crocodiles, hippos and other animals coming to drink.
The open safari vehicles used are perfectly safe to view animals from. Animals see the vehicle only, and not the passengers at all.
Pilanesberg is in the transition zone between the wetter and more arid regions of South Africa. Species from both zones are found. Springbok, Brown Hyena here are not found in the wetter Kruger National Park. Similarly Sable and Impala here are not found in the Kalahari.
Return to lodge for breakfast. Then laze around swimming pool in hot part of day, then a leisurely lunch.
Gather for tea at 4 pm and then go for sunset game drive returning for dinner under the African stars.


Day 3
Sunrise Safari and return via another scenic route with your private guide

As before rise with the dawn and depart on an early morning safari unless you want to do something different like a safari walk with armed ranger. This has to be booked with reception and needs a group minimum of four. You also have to be moderately fit. It will give you an entirely different perspective on the wild. There is an extra charge should you book this payable to reception.
In either case walk or drive return to lodge for breakfast and later after check out your private guide will take you on another scenic and interesting route back to Johannesburg. As above on Day 1. arrangements can be made to stop at interesting places that lie between Pilanesberg and Johannesburg/Pretoria. Sun City is nearby for lunch!
Alternatively we can extend your safari by staying in the reserve until afternoon or even sunset ( extra time charge will apply). It all depends on when you have to be back at your hotel or airport.
