Visit the Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa - Travel Guide
Shepherd Entertainment takes you on a tour of the Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa, which is the third largest game
reservation of the country which was opened in 1979.
Visiting Pilanesberg in South Africa
The Pilanesberg national park is the third largest game reservation of the country which was opened in 1979 all together 8,000 specimens of several species of animals lived here among them, the five big games, lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos and rhinoceroses.
Besides them we can see giraffes, zebras, antelopes and monkeys of course. Safari is done open buses around the park so there's a good opportunity to take photographs. Of course it's not allowed to get off the buses. It serves the safety of visitors as well as the visited animals. The motion mostly watching rhino charged us at the noise of Rocco running away. As sighted its head quickly but after the noise of my shot, my rhinoceros didn't collapse but turned around suddenly and run away.
But I had time to shoot another sighting its shoulder. It happened in a moment and the rhino disappeared in a moment. Paulo was in the bad mood because he liked only to shoot the game. I beckon Paulo to move. Getting out of the shrubbery, we followed the path of the shot game. Only a rhino shot in the shoulder has such a big blood print. As if the night's fresh blood were watered by a can. My African tanning light shoes became bloody walking in the pools of blood. Our rhino lay about 80 or a hundred steps from the sight of shooting. He was lying, collapsed and turning towards us. The kirangosian and Rocco told me to shoot him because they thought it was still alive. Its horn was prominent and strong, so I was afraid that my prey was a white rhino.
I leaned my gun against the rhinos back and I tried to lift his head lying in the blood to see its lips. The upper lips of black rhinoceros are pointed like a trunk but white rhinoceroses have a straight lip, I was trying to lift the heavy head using every effort and Paulo was also coming to help me. Suddenly the head became light when my rhino lifted his head and looked at me. It can imagine the look on my face as I trying to back away from the dangerous animal seemly to come to life again by jumping back. I must have set the jumping record from the year of 1929.
Paulo and my people all shouted and scattered, "shoot him", it was easy to say but hard to do because my gun was leaned against the back of the rhinoceros. The rhino dropped his head back into the pool of flood. The panic was totally unnecessary. The sudden lift of the head was the last reflex of life.
Now we look at the shots. The first shot intended to its forehead had hit his horn which stopped the bullet. At the same time, it stopped the rhino from running towards us. The second shot went to his shoulder going through his lung. The horn was prominently strong. It was almost 20 inches long and weighed almost 12 pounds dried up. Kalman Kittenberger wrote that one of his hunts.
Ambitious tourists if not with the gun but torches in their hands can watch the game at night with local leaders. We can pay not only for a Safari at dawn, in the afternoon or at night but also a panorama flight in a balloon with champagne where we can watch the animals from a safe distance. It's an unforgettable trip above the Pilanesberg Mountains.
Beside the national park, we can find some of accommodations of various equipment, size and price. There are African bungalows with reed roof and public bathrooms with cold water and luxurious apartments with a swimming pool and self service dinning. From the terrace of some hotels, we can watch wild animals in the day and hear the cries of wild life lying in our beds at night.

Sol Kesner the young bookkeeper working in the catering industry opened his first hotel in 1964. His business empire became bigger and bigger by selling and buying shares, he was able to make his dream come true by 1980 which has become a dream of ours as well. The exotic world of Sun City has tropical forest and among the trees, orchids bloom. The scent is intoxicating, the colors are damped by the light coming through the leaves among the branches, monkeys and parrots with colorful feathers squeal. In the lakes flamingo's can be seen and water lilies bloom. A flight of exotic birds enjoy the jungle. On the grass of parks delicate peacocks sweep. Realistic statues of the animals of Africa ornament the streets, bridges, corridors and terraces. Friendly zebras, elephants, funny monkeys and more lions watch us everywhere. In the sheltered sea bay with its white sand, you can get a real bath in the waves. It's a world of tales where everything got to be found in unspoiled nature but without its dangers. In this jungle there are no pythons or tigers leveling at us. In the rivers there are no crocodiles and even mosquitoes are exterminated regularly. The charm of Sun City resides in a fact that we get concentrated African experiences well not only our safety and comfort are taking cared off but also our entertainment. Here, it's impossible to be bored. In the building of a five star hotel cascades, there's a casino and a theatre hall for thousands of people which also cater for our entertaining.
