About Black Rhino Game Reserve

The magnificent Black Rhino Game Reserve is a more recent addition to the world-acclaimed Pilanesberg National Park in the North West Province of South Africa. Its incredible variety of plant life and landscapes make it the ideal natural habitat to some of the world’s most exciting species of both predator and prey.

Did you know? Although it feels like another world, the Black Rhino Game Reserve and the greater Pilanesberg National Park are only about 2.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, Pretoria.

The Black Rhino Game Reserve is a malaria-free zone. So, it is ideal for families with children or older ones. It is situated right on the north-western side of Pilanesberg. This national park covers an area of 55 000 hectares and shares a border with the ever-popular entertainment hotspot of Sun City.

This reserve is home to the Big Five; which is made up of the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhinoceros (both black and white). More than this, visitors may spot the wild dog, roan, sable, tsessebe, hippopotamus, African wild cat, cheetah, caracal, hyena, jackal, and fox. The local elephant population is massive, so visitors are sure to spot some of these graceful giants trundling through the bushveld.

Bird-watchers will, no doubt, love spending time in this bushveld, where they can see a variety of exciting species. These may include the secretary bird, vultures (lappet-faced, Cape, and white-backed), martial eagle, Kori bustard, carmine bee-eater, lilac-breasted roller, shaft-tailed whydah, and violet-eared waxbill.

Head out on a guided game drive, a walk through the aviary, or even a hot-air balloon flight over the reserve for some really special game-viewing opportunities. There are a variety of beautiful picnic spots for families that want to breathe the fresh air and enjoy time together without the pressures of city life. The guides and rangers at the reserve are experienced and willing to share their insight and knowledge with visitors that want to know more about the gorgeous fauna and flora of Africa.

Although it feels like another world, the Black Rhino Game Reserve and the greater Pilanesberg National Park are only about 2.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, Pretoria, and the OR Tambo International Airport, making it particularly accessible.
