Pilanesberg Safari Park
Located about 150 km north of Johannesburg in the Bophuthatswana region and at the bottom of a crater, the Pilanesberg National Park encompasses parts of the Kalahari Savannah and the Transvaal. With more than 6,000 animals from all over the country, Pilanesberg was originally a wildlife re-planting project in South Africa. The lions are particularly well acclimated and present in large quantities, but we can also approach elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, hyenas, giraffes, hippos, and crocodiles. As you visit Pilanesberg, you will end up the heart of an old volcano where there is a lake.
Visit the Capital Johannesburg
No need to search for a European-style city center here. Rather, imagine a Los Angeles without the ocean but with its panoply of buildings, billboards and residential luxury. Joburg is a city constantly reinventing itself: Houghton, the old white district, now hosts the black middle class, the Black Diamonds, who ride a sports car, play golf and dance in chic clubs. Newton, a former industrial area, is now the center of thriving cultural activity. Braamfontein is a student district crowded with art galleries. The Buppies meet at the Fashion District. This wind of modernity does not sweep away the historical dimension of Joburg, which can be discovered by following the footsteps of Gandhi, Mandela, and the Apartheid Museum, to record the nation’s most tragic hours.
