SOUTH AFRICAN WILDLIFE SAFARI

Louis Kleynhans is very proud to offer you this unique 7 day safari to the amazing Pilansberg set in one of the most sought after unspoiled and pristine game viewing areas Pilansberg National Park.

Your action packed adventure takes place in this reserve of virgin African bush.

Wildlife abounds in this area, and you will have the unrivalled opportunity to photograph not only the Big 5, but also hundreds of other species.

We all have a fascination for the big cats, and the Pilansberg has become synonymous with Leopard sightings and some of the biggest Elephants in the world

Your safari experience is enhanced by the use of highly skilled knowledgeable Game Rangers, and an experienced Wildlife photographer on each vehicle.

Louis limits the number of guests on each vehicle, giving you the best possible opportunity for optimum sightings, with no crowding.

The Pilansberg National Park, is characterized by impressive volcanic mountain forms and rolling savannah grasslands 1300 million years old. These impressive features have created one of the most topographically diverse Reserves to be found in South Africa. The 55 000 hectares (132 000 acres) of Pilansberg National Park are home to some 10 000 animals and the park is now one of the privileged reserves hosting the Big Five and 364 species of bird. A major reason for Pilansberg’ s diversity of animals is that it lies in the transition zone between the arid Kalahari in the west and the humid Lowveld of the Northwest Province. The seven different habitats at the Pilansberg attract and cultivate prolific birdlife.
