We started the day off with breakfast with the newly weds as they were off on their honeymoon and we won’t see them before we fly out 🙁
We’ve had such a wonderful time with them it was quite sad to be saying goodbye again, because as they say there is no good in bye.
So with a yummy breaky in our tummy and goodbyes done we hit the road again bound for the bush again – this time Pilanesberg National Park and Game Reserve about 2 hours out of Jozi.
We got here about lunchtime did some quick food shopping and checked into our glamper for the next few days
Once we had checked in it was time to head into the park.
The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is located in North West Province in South Africa, west of Pretoria which is to the North-ish of Jozi
The area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills, of which the formation rises from the surrounding plains. Pilanesberg is named after a Tswana chief, Pilane.
The ‘Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex’ is the park’s primary geological feature. This vast circular geological feature is ancient even by geological standards as it is the crater of a long extinct volcano and the result of eruptions some 1,200 million years ago. It is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its type in the world, the rare rock types and formations make it a unique geological feature. A number of rare minerals occur in the park. Pilanesberg Game Reserve rates high amongst the world’s outstanding geological phenomena
We had a pretty good afternoon/evening in the park, no cats but hey we can’t have it all .. can we ???
