Ideal for children and families

Nearly all lodges and resorts in Pilanesberg National Park welcome children — but some have gone above and beyond to extend their hands to our smallest travellers. We think children of all ages will enjoy some of the offerings we have highlighted for you. See why Pilanesberg has the perfect accommodation for your family’s next adventure.

Nkala Safari Lodge

We all know down-time is precious, don’t spend yours away from your family because of sticky child-policies! Soak up the magic of a safari in the heart of the Black Rhino Game Reserve with your kids too. The property is booked out to one party at a time, meaning you get the freedom to bring whoever you’d like on your bush adventure – children of all ages welcome!

Thutlwa Safari Lodge

Thutlwa Safari Lodge is family-orientated, luxury accommodation in the private Black Rhino Game Reserve. The 8 safari-style, thatched-chalets are equipped to cater for small babies and young children – high chairs, baby monitors, kids-style cutlery sets, and baby cots are provided on request. Moms and dads can decide whether to include their children on game-drives at their discretion.
