After our wedding we will be going on a three day safari to our favorite place - Pilanesberg National Park. For those who want to join us, we would be absolutely thrilled to share our love for the bush with you (this is not a honeymoon, the more the merrier)! We will be flying from Cape Town to Johannesburg (OR Tambo Airport) on the morning of Wednesday, October 26 and heading up to Shepherd's Tree Game Lodge once we land. We will spend three nights in the bush and depart after lunch time on Saturday, October 29 to Johannesburg (OR Tambo Airport). 


About Pilanesberg: Pilanesberg is home to over 7,000 animals including the Big 5. Located under three hours north of Johannesburg, it is an easy to get to (and Malaria-free) national park that boasts 125,000 acres to explore. Pilanesberg is the crater of a long extinct volcano that is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world.The park rests within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, (commonly referred to as “Bushveld”). Unlike other parks, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone. The colorful hues, varied habitats and panoramas will delight and entertain photographers and visitors. In the centre of the park is Thabayadiotso, “the Proud Mountain”. Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.
