On Saturday morning I collected my guest from Sandton at about 07:00am and we made our way to
We didn’t drive very far before getting a herd of the Pilanesberg’s Elephant. They were very close to the road when we spotted them and after viewing them for a couple of minutes the entire herd approached the vehicle and they practically surrounded us as they crossed the road. This allowed for some very close-up photos which my guest and I loved.
During the next hour of our game drive we also saw a lot of Blue-wildebeest, Zebra and Impala. We also spotted some Hippo, Sprinbok and Waterbuck, and before we reached Mankwe dam we got another large breeding herd of Elephant. My guest was very impressed with the amount of game we already saw and especially the two herds of Elephant. He didn’t expect Pilanesberg to give him so much in just the first couple of hours of his African Safari.
