Located on the edge of the scenic, malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, Manyane Resort provides guests with access to the fourth largest park in South Africa, for an exiting safari near Sun City. This beautiful reserve has volcanic origins and hosts almost every Southern African mammal amongst abundant wildlife and over 300 bird species.
Pilanesberg National Park has been created around an ancient, extinct volcano that is the most perfect example of an alkaline ring complex and the park is an outstanding geological phenomenon. The area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills - the formation rises from the surrounding plains like a bubble.
Covering and area of 55 000 hectares, Pilanesberg National Park is a sought after destination for a Big Five safari near Sun City, which is just 20 minutes drive away. Situated in the scenic Bonjalo Region of the North West Province, this park was proclaimed in 1979 and has since undergone a remarkable transformation by world-wide standards to re-stock long since vanished species.
Manyane Resort guests can enjoy twice daily game drives, night drives, bush walks and even hot-air balloon safaris to mention a few highlights. Abundant wildlife proliferates in the diverse and arresting terrain. Apart from the Big Five, visitors can see a wide variety of rare and common species, also endemic species like nocturnal brown hyena, fleet-footed cheetah, majestic sable, as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodile.
