Activities in and around Morokolo Safari Lodge

The Black Rhino Reserve forms part of the Greater Pilanesberg National Park measuring 57 000 hectares. Situated in the north western corner of the Pilanesberg National Park, The Black Rhino Reserve is just under 2 500 hectares in size and represents the first portion of private land incorporated into the Pilanesberg National Park. It is a private concession with its own entrance on the north-western side of the park.

Elephant, buffalo and a variety of antelope often roam in this area as they take shelter in remote areas not accessible to other visitors to Pilanesberg National Park. Characterised by a beautiful forest of Tamboti trees and occasional sightings of the bad tempered Black Rhino, the Black Rhino Reserve is home to the BIG 5 (Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, White & Black Rhino) as well as a wide variety of antelope species (including Sable, Tsetsebe, Eland, Kudu and Springbok) and the rare sightings of wild dog.

With a species list of over 354, the Black Rhino Reserve is also a true "birders paradise". 

On-site Activities

One professionally-guided Big 5 vehicle safaris (included in the room rates) each day will keep you in awe of the splendid natural beauty of the Black Rhino Reserve and the Pilanesberg National Park. Elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, buffalo, wild dogs, kudus, wildebeest, warthogs and spring hares are but a few of the more commonly seen animals.

Walking safaris are available. The walk focuses on locating and observing the inhabitants of the Black Rhino Game Reserve from a different angle - on foot. Guests are accompanied by a qualified guide who will share his/her extensive knowledge and experience on both fauna and flora. Excursions depart in the early morning, or early afternoon..

 

Area Activities

Located on the slopes of the Pilanesberg Mountains, Morokolo Safari Lodge is 35 km from Sun City and 51 km from Pilanesberg International Airport. Hot air ballooning: Fly in hot air balloons within this unique location with all its scenic beauty and wildlife, only 35 minutes' drive from the lodge

Valley of Waves at Sun City: Fun, fun, fun for the whole family! The Valley of Waves at Sun City is the most advanced Water Park in South Africa and provides hours of entertainment beneath the warm South African sun. The Roaring Lagoon is the centre of the park - and a regular 1.2 metre wave is generated and crashes on the white sandy beach. Surrounding the lagoon a meandering river allows for a wonderful scenic tube-ride and, for adrenaline seekers there are five exhilarating water-rides to choose from including the Temple of Courage.

Golf: Sun City can lay claim to having two of the best golf courses in Africa. Both courses were designed by well-known Gary Player and offer challenging courses in extremely scenic surroundings. The Lost City Golf Course is a unique experience and offers spectacular views across the bushveld. Also to be noted is the use of bunkers and extensive water features - and at the 13th hole 38 crocodiles await. The par 72 course at the Gary Player Country Club is home to the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge and the tree lined course is a challenge to both novices and professionals. The pro-shop, putting green and health spa are open 7-days a week.

Quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and archery: only 35km from the lodge in the Sun City complex, go and search for adventure and wildlife on a four-wheeler, encountering natural obstacles on the trail. Or blast away at clays with a 12-gauge shotgun! Or try your hand at the ancient sport of archery with modern day equipment.
