A transfer can be arranged from Sun City to Black Rhino Game lodge. 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. These species are normally found in dry areas, co-habitat with Impala, Black Eyed Bulbul and the Cape Chestnut trees are normally found in wetter areas. The Pilanesberg National Park is a 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 33km drive from Black Rhino Game Reserve.
