Pilanesberg: A park close to Johannesburg
The Pilanesberg National Park is ideal to visit in your motorhome. It is home to many animals and has fewer tourists than some of the bigger parks. You will be able to spot the wildlife very quickly and easily, even lions if you are lucky! The landscape is more rugged than in the Kruger National Park, offering beautiful scenery.
The park is very accessible from Johannesburg and has a good road network for exploring and looking for animals. The numerous routes within the park converge around the tranquil waters of Lake Mankwe formed in the crater of an ancient volcano and there are many places to park your motorhome and enjoy the surrounding wildlife. The park is malaria-free and has two good campsites for motorhomes.
Don't forget to stop at Sun City on the way at the intersection of the R104 and the R560 in Welwitschia!
