You'll notice on this Pilanesberg Map that the park is circular in shape as it is a caldera - a volcano that has collapsed inwards.
The Pilanesberg can fit into the Kruger Park about 20 times so it is a small park by comparison. You could see the whole park in just a day or two but if you drive slow and go out in the early mornings and late afternoons, when the light is best for photography, it would take about five days to get a feel for the whole park.
The first map shows all the lodges - circled in red, both within and on the perimeter of the park.
The second map shows the bird hides - circled in green. The vulture hide burnt down and management do not intend rebuilding it hence we have not marked it on the map.
The third map shows all the cheetah sightings over a twelve month period. The A = a morning sighting (AM) and the P = afternoon sighting (PM).
This sighting map is from the electronic sighting system called Park View, where guests input their daily sightings on a computer screen and can then look at daily, weekly, monthly or yearly sightings of certain animals - what a great tool to help visitors find animals!

"As a photographer and someone who has visited and taken photographs in the Pilanesberg National Park, I can safely say that with the knowledge gained from this eBook, your experiences and photographs will be much more memorable." - Alastair Stewart, B C, Canada
"This work is so much more than an eBook, because it is also a guide, a tutorial, an inspiration and a must-have for anyone interested in wildlife photography" - Findtripinfo.com, USA
"I would describe myself as an enthusiastic amateur photographer, who is keen to know more - but one who feels a bit clueless as to how to get better. This is the perfect book for people like me! What I really like about it is that it gives very specific, down-to-earth ideas that non-specialists can actually understand (and I am a writer by trade, so I demand high standards of clarity)" - Harriet Morris, USA
