Fair - Good - Excellent

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.

Best Time May to September (Dry season)
High Season October to April (The park is busier, especially during school holidays)
Low Season May to September (This is the best time for wildlife viewing)
Best Weather April to May and September to October (Mild weather and little rain)
Worst Weather May to August (Chilly mornings and nights) and December to February (Hot and afternoon rain)
