Highlights for January 2019

Every Game drive/Safari in the Pilanesberg is different, as field guides we drive through the gate and never know exactly what is going to happen. This all adds to the excitement as we head out on a game drive or Hot air balloon flight. 

The rains continue, everything is bright green and the bush is starting to get thick again. We have managed to share some great sightings with our guests this month. Including “the ghosts” of the Pilanesberg (Buffalo) and a hot air balloon flight over the king of the jungle.

December brought on the rain, the park is looking so green again and the Wildebeest have started giving birth (a little late this year). We have shared some great moments with our guests during the festive season. Here are some highlights we would like to share with you.

And the rains have started, we have had a bit of rain to kick off the summer. Not a lot but enough to start turning the burnt areas green. We now wait with bated breath for more rain and for the babies to start being born. Here are some highlights we would like to share with you.

One of the perks of our job is that every now and then we get to actually go on one of the activities as a guest instead of a guide. On this occasion, I went on the Hot air balloon flight to get some photos from the air.

No doubt about it July is cold, but once you are on the balloon excitement overtakes the chill around you. There was some mist coming off of Mankwe Dam that morning which made for some great photo opportunities.

There were three balloons taking to the sky that morning making for an even better photo opportunity and a better perspective of what it is like up there.

You don’t even realize you are moving almost like floating on a cloud.

Why not come and experience it for yourself? Take advantage of our winter warmer special,

ending 31 August 2018.
