KNP is vol bespreek. Ek kyk na alternatief. Wat sou julle aanbeveel....Pilanesberg of Bontle - Marakele Nasionale park?

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Wat die Groot 5 en Marakele betref is die renosters in die deel waar die kampplek is. Hulle loop vrylik daar rond. Die res is oorkant die pad. Jy gaan deur 'n dubbel hek om te keer dat die wild deurglip. Die deel is baie ryg, toe ons daar was, en jy is gelukkig om 'n olifant te sien. 

Was nog nie by Pilanesberg nie maar ek dink jou kanse om die G5 te sien is beter daar.

The Happy Campers.

We love both parks.

As has been said, Animals are far less at Marakele, but the scenery and bush experience are breath-taking. Marakele is smaller than Pilanesberg, so it depends on how long you want to stay there. One of the highlights is the drive up to the top of the mountain where the radio masts are. It is all tar but very narrow with very long drops. From memory, you climb something like 700m from bottom to top in a distance of about 2 km.

There is a water hole near Bontle camp with no fences, so the animals, including rhino can wander around your caravan. (No predators though)

Pilanesburg as I mentioned is a lot bigger and busier with plenty animals including cheetah and springbok. Also has magnificent drives. 

Both camp shops have got very little and what there is is very expensive.

We only stay at Manyane camp, but both Pilanesburg camps suffer from noisy evening parties from the nearby townships.

Maybe, if you have time, you could go to both via Brits.

We only saw Rhino on the "wild" side.

Enjoyed the drive up the mountain, stunning scenery and close to the Cape Vultures.

Marakele is anders, maar nog steeds baie lekker. Was al daar waar die volstruis deur die kamp loop en kom kyk het wat op die braai is en die renoster teen die kamp verbyloop.  Vir my..... eerder Marakele as Pilanesberg.

Dankie vir almal se terugvoering.....ons het maar besluit om weer Pilanesberg te kies. Ons hou van wild besigtig en Pilanesberg stel in daai opsig nie teleur
