... is located in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. We had a very friendly guide. The main animals we saw, were the Wildebeest, White Rhino, Kudu, Lion, Hyena, Baboon, Impala, Zebra and Giraffe. The Lion is special since they crossed the road in front of us, with there being 2 Males and 3 Females, we also saw others in a different area, but from a distance. Altogether we saw about 9 Lions.

We were very keen to see more elephants so we drove closer to it, but it wasn’t interested in having its photo taken and quickly turned its back and hid among the trees. The plains also had red hartebeest and warthogs on it.
