The best wildlife viewing in the Pilanesberg is in the dry winter months from May to September. The vegetation thins out as the ground gets drier, and animals tend to congregate around permanent water sources making them easier to spot.

High SeasonOctober to April (The park is busier, especially during school holidays)
Low SeasonMay to September (This is the best time for wildlife viewing)
Best WeatherApril to May and September to October (Mild weather and little rain)
