Golden Leopards: Bakgatla Resort

The Bakgatla Resort is situated on the edge of the Pilanesberg National Park. This game reserve is in the crater of an extinct volcano which was formed by eruptions approximately 1200 million years ago. Home now to a wide diversity of wild animals which includes the Big 5. There are a number of Stone and Iron Age sites scattered throughout the Pilanesberg park. These offer proof of man’s early existence in the Pilanesberg.

The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is in a region between the dry Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld (as found in the Kruger Park) biomes with an consequent overlap of mammals, birds and vegetation species from both, in this transition zone. Animals such as springbok, hartebeest and brown hyena, which prefer arid areas, are here, living side-by-side with those that prefer the more moist-area, animals such as impala, thus giving a great diversity of specials for visitors to Bakgatla and Pilanesberg Game Reserve to see.
