Group Safaris at Pilanesberg
South Africa offers a perfect combination of luxury and adventure, and with Savannah Safaris’ top hospitality included, there’s a treat in store for groups of all ages, whatever you like to do.
Friendship groups and those drawn together by business or a particular hobby can all share this wonderful bonding safari experience. With a fabulous collection of wild animals and natural flora, including the BIG 5, the safari holiday is both exotic and down to earth – a perfect setting for exploring and simply having fun or for following a particular passion such as photography, painting, writing or wildlife study. And all with the sunshine, glorious landscapes and huge starry skies of the African wilderness.
With Savannah Safaris your group can choose self-catering or full-on luxury to suit your style, but whichever you choose your daily itinerary is flexible and you’ll have a great week’s unforgettable vacation together.
Savannah Safaris’ Private Luxury Lodge
Your accommodation is five-star luxury all round, sophisticated but relaxed: enjoy large and beautifully furnished 2 or 4 bed chalets with double-height thatched ceilings, sublimely comfy double and single beds with top-grade linens, and unbroken views into the bush and across the hillsides. The bathrooms are spacious with large free-standing stone baths, open showers and double basins, and there are private open-air showers to cool off straight-away after a day-out. Sit out in the shady gardens on private terraces, or lounge by the pool and sip cool, refreshing drinks.
Uniquely, the Savannah Safaris’ Lodge is completely private – only for you and your group, with just the right amount of non-intrusive pampering from the staff so that you can work or study, or just get on with enjoying yourselves.
Savannah Safaris’ Luxury Lodge within the Black Rhino Private Reserve at Pilanesberg
There’s a gourmet chef to prepare all your meals just as you like them (but not for self-catering groups); a maintenance man to attend to the gardens and pools; and house-keepers to tidy and clean your chalets every day. It’s a five-star treat that everyone will appreciate.
You’ll arrive to a sparkling champagne reception and a very warm welcome, and then there’s time to get unpacked and begin to unwind in your new Lodge surroundings. And your private safari vehicle is standing by when you’re all ready to take your first drive into Pilanesberg’s animal reserve.
Why Pilanesberg National Park
Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa
For those interested in nature and conservation there’s nothing like the big outdoors and the possibility of big-game encounters – and at Pilanesberg it’s just about guaranteed. Its relatively small size and varied and spectacular landscapes offer a wide variety of animal life within easy range and your group, whatever their ages, will discover fresh facts every day from your experienced and passionate ranger-guide.
Travel to and within South Africa is no longer difficult, with daily international flights to Cape Town and Johannesberg. Onward travel to Sun City and your pick-up in under two hours makes journeys easy and affordable. (The price of the Rand has fallen in recent years making South Africa a seriously attractive destination for financial reasons, too).
