Rhino-and-Lion-Cradle-of-Human-Kind
The reserve was founded in 1985 by Ed Hern with the aim of preserving this beautiful area for private leisure outings. Before this, the land was utilised as a commercial farm. From a modest beginning of several antelope species and two white rhinos, imported from a zoo in Germany, the reserve now boasts 600 head of game, representing 25 different species. These include lion (also white lion), wild dogs, cheetahs, kudu, hippos, tigers, sable antelope and several smaller antelope species. You will have the opportunity to feed giraffes and visit the newly born lion cubs in the nursery.

Rhino-and-Lion-Cradle-of-Human-Kind
The Fossil Hominid Sites of Sterkfontein, Swartkrans, Kromdraai and Environs, known as Cradle of Humankind, was declared a World Heritage Site (WHS) on 2nd December 1999.

The Sterkfontein Caves are one of the richest and most productive palaeo-anthropological sites in the world. Amongst the most remarkable findings to have been made by numerous world famous scientists within the Cradle of Humankind is the famous Mrs Ples, the first complete Australopithecus skull to be discovered. More recently, “Little Foot”, a 3.3 million-year-old almost complete ape-man skeleton was also discovered in the same caves and is still under excavation.

More than 500 hominid fossils, thousands of animal fossils, over 300 fragments of fossil wood, and over 9000 tone tools-some of them the oldest in Southern Africa have been found in the twelve explored sites within the Cradle of Humankind and more are still being discovered.
The recent announcement of Homo Naledi adds a new dimension to all the aforementioned discoveries.

The pricing below includes:
  • 08h30 pick-up at a venue of your choice (two venues if there are more than 3 passengers)

Rhino-and-Lion-Cradle-of-Human-Kind
Founded 1979 in Operation Geneses, Pilanesberg Game Reserve today is a Big Five Reserve.

The crater of a long extinct volcano is the setting of Pilanesberg National Park. It is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world. Its rare rock types and structure make it a unique geological feature.

The park exists within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as “Bushveld”. Unlike any other large park, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone.

The very topography makes the area a feast for the eye. Here are syenite koppies, thickly forested ravines, typical Bushveld and also rolling grasslands and lightly wooded areas. Near the centre of the park is Thabayadiotso, “the Proud Mountain”. The Park covers an area of 55 000 hectare.

The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.

Wildlife & Bird-Life

An abundance of wild life proliferates in 580 sq km of diverse and arresting Bushveld terrain. The park is home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant, brown hyena, the fleet-footed cheetah, the majestic sable, as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodile and buffalo.

Bird watching is excellent with over 300 species recorded. Some are migrants, others permanent inhabitants; some eat carrion or live prey; others eat seeds, fruit or tiny water organisms.

The pricing below includes:
  • 05h30 pick-up at a venue of your choice (two venues if there are more than 3 passengers)
  • Return to the same venue at about 17h30 for 18h30
