We loved our breakfast at the Melrose arch hotel and then headed for Pilanesberg National Park. Pilanesberg National Park is just two hour’s drive from Johannesburg. 

Hopped on to the bus to leave for Pilanesberg National Park
We stopped at the Chameleon Village for buying affordable souvenirs and then continued our journey. Eventually, we reached Pilanesberg National Park at lunch time and checked in at Kwa Maritane Lodge. We set on the yummy food in the lunch buffet. 
At Kwa Maritane Lodge
Shortly after lunch, we were ready to leave from Kwa Maritane for the first safari of our trip. We were offered milk shake before leaving for Safari and on asking them, they cracked a joke that if any animal eats us, it should get tasty food. We were set out in an open game-viewing vehicle.

We were in search for the Big Five. We spotted three (Cape buffalo, elephant, rhino) out of five. We stopped for sundowners amid spectacular surrounding near a lake.

We began our journey back to the Lodge at sunset time. Our guide cum vehicle driver stopped the vehicle in the middle of somewhere in the park. At this point, I was looking at the stars in the sky and I could actually feel the stars. We again continued our journey to the Lodge. We were welcomed with hot veg mushroom soup and a traditional South African dance by few local artists.

On Saturday and Wednesday evenings (weather permitting) Lodge offers dine al fresco on traditional South African fare in the Bush Boma. We were lucky because it was Saturday. We loved our dinner at small Boma.

We got to our suite after dinner because we had to leave for Johannesburg at 6 in the morning.
