The Black Rhino Reserve’s landscape is an enthralling combination of undulating plains, tamboti forests, tumbling mountains, and rolling hills that dip into unexplored valleys. The park borders and shares game-viewing land with the volcanic Pilanesberg Game Reserve on its north-western corner.
The elliptically-leafed tamboti trees dominate the area with winter painting the leaves bright red and summer witnessing its dry fruits splitting into three when ripe. The trees attract the shy, black rhino and are host to a variety of birds. Kudu, sable, eland, and zebra can be seen grazing the grassland while open-air game drives reveal lion, leopard, and curious elephant and buffalo herds. The 4X4 vehicles rumble along dusty, orange roads and into unexplored valleys before reaching the 200km road network of Pilanesberg National Park.
The sweet vegetation of the lower lying landscape in Black Rhino Reserve complements Pilanesberg’s predominantly blended sour veld, resulting in a wide variety of species roaming the area. The malaria-free reserve is just north of the sumptuous Sun City. Trade wildlife for the high life by gambling at the casino, golfing on the 18-hole course, attending spectacular live performances and diving into the man-made tropical beach, complete with man-made waves.
