Pilanesberg Private Lodge is a new private retreat nestled on the foot of the majestic Pilanesberg Mountains, in the Black Rhino Private Reserve. The lodge is uniquely situated within a two-hour drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and is within a 20-minute drive from Sun City.

The lodge is uniquely positioned in a part of the Pilanesberg National Park wilderness area that has previously not been accessible to any visitors.

The lodge was designed to incorporate the views to ensure that even when you are not on game drives, you still have the opportunity to see any of the animals from the lodge, and elephant, Black and White rhino, lion and leopard have been spotted from the lodge in the last few months.

We offer five sleeping units that are connected via paved pathways and bridges to the communal area.
