When I visited the Pilanesberg National Park, I was amazed by its beauty and fascinating history. This incredible place is formed by an ancient volcano, and it’s home to around 7000 different animals.

Whether you prefer to go on a self-drive or join a guided game drive, there are plenty of ways to explore the park and get up close to the incredible wildlife. And if you’re a bird lover like me, you’ll be delighted to know that the park offers excellent birdwatching opportunities.

Another highlight of the park is the chance to have a peaceful picnic surrounded by nature. There are designated picnic spots where you can relax and enjoy a meal with a stunning view.

Now let me tell you about the Klerksdorp Museum

During my trip, I also had the chance to visit the Klerksdorp Museum. This museum is housed in several buildings, and the main one is an impressive sandstone structure that was built in 1891. What makes this building even more fascinating is that it used to be a prison.

Inside the museum, you can explore exhibitions about the area’s archaeology, cultural history, and even see animal-drawn vehicles. It’s a fantastic place to learn more about the rich heritage of the region.

When you visit the museum, you’ll find an array of rotating temporary exhibitions to explore. The exhibits at the museum also provide a glimpse into the early life and social history of the town. And if you’re interested, you can even book a fascinating tour of this historic gem.
