The Black Rhino Game Lodge is found in the malaria free, ‘Big Five’ Pilanesberg National Park of South Africa’s North West Province. The Lodge provides a beautiful bushveld getaway.

Unlike any other national game park, the Pilanesberg hosts a combination of animal, bird, insect, reptilian and vegetation species, such as the Brown Hyena, Springbok, Red Eyed Bulbul and Camel Thorn tree. The Pilanesberg National Park is the perfect combination of the Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld. A major advantage of the Pilanesberg is that it is ‘Malaria Free’, which is not the case with other game parks further north. Sun City, best known for hosting the Million Dollar Golf Challenge and other spectacular events, lies on the border of the Pilanesberg, and is only a 33 km drive from the Black Rhino Game Reserve.
