The Pilanesberg is an ancient volcanic structure, circular in shape, that rises from flat surrounding plains. It is formed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills, of which the outermost has a diameter of about 24 km.
The Pilanesberg is located 100 km to the northwest of Pretoria. It is for the greater part enclosed in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
Pilanesberg is an all-year-round safari destination. Summer months have very high day-time temperatures, while winter months have very cold early morning and evenings, but mild day time temperatures.
One can travel through in a standard road vehicle. Although most of the 188 kilometres of track are not surfaced, they are well maintained. Several game and hunting lodges are situated within the park itself. The park borders with the entertainment complex Sun City.
