... is located in the North of South Africa.

This impressive 30km diameter range of free-standing volcanic hills was gazetted as a national park and stocked with wildlife in 1979.

The reserve is encircled by an outer ring of settlement and an inner ring of large resorts, which combine to make it rather less attractive that it might otherwise be to the international visitor. To be honest we very rarely end up recommending any of the accommodation options in this area, but these are the best of them ...

Palace of the Lost City ... is by far the best and most interesting options at Sun City, a gambling, frolicking, golfing holiday resort of world renown. It is a magnificent monument to inauthenticity, a place which really has to be seen to be believed.

Tshukudu Bush Lodge ... is a surprisingly good small safari camp up on the top of Pilansberg.
