Our Private Pilanesberg Game Reserve
Savannah Lodge lies within the distinct 20 square kilometre Black Rhino reserve,
located in the north-west corner of the 570 square kilometre Pilanesberg Wildlife (Game) Park.
A Priviliged Wildlife Haven
Black Rhino has its own secure, private road entrance on the western border, but there are no boundary fences between the reserve and the wider park area – wildlife is free to roam across both areas. Our game vehicles are entitled to cross from the Black Rhino Reserve into the Pilanesberg Wildlife Park. This allows you to enjoy the privacy of the reserve along with the richness of the national park, and to experience the abundant sights and sounds of the bush.
Black Rhino’s lower lying sweet veld vegetation complements the Pilanesberg’s predominantly mixed sour veld and the reserve is also characterised by groves of Tamboti and Num-num trees. The reserve is home to the ‘Big Five’ species animals – Elephant, Lion, Leopard and both Black and White Rhino and Buffalo. These, plus Cheetah, Wild dog and many hundreds of Antelope regularly roam in this area as they take shelter in remote areas not accessible to other visitors to Pilanesberg National Park.
