3 National Parks You Have To Visit If You’re Ever In Johannesburg, South Africa

There are quite a few South African national parks that are worth the trip to see, whether you’re in South Africa or just passing through on your travels around Africa. Here are the top three national parks you have to visit if you’re ever in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Pilanesberg, a volcanic crater-like area northwest of Johannesburg, is worth seeing for its dramatic scenery and unique rock formations alone. Although one of its primary attractions is the variety of animals, it also helps that Sun City, a well-known resort and entertainment complex, is nearby. One can easily spend an entire day at the park, exploring different trails.
There are hiking trails that range from easy to challenging to very difficult, so it’s good to plan ahead with your level of fitness in mind before setting out on a long hike.
In addition to trekking across paths, visitors can look up in awe at the various waterfalls, explore cave complexes or just wander about without a destination in mind.

Marakele National Park

Marakele is the ideal location if you’re seeking for a national park with unspoiled natural beauty. The cape griffon vultures, elephants, and antelopes that live there are what make it a truly natural oasis. Visitors may stay in tents and cabins at this park, which provides attractive lodging options. Royal Malewane Golf Course & Spa: For golfers looking for a relaxing game of golf in scenic surroundings, Royal Malewane should be top of their list.
