The formation of the Pilanesberg occurred 2,000 million years ago . Described by geologists as the Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex, the Pilanesberg is one of the 3 alkaline volcanoes in the world and is exceptionally old. At its zenith, the volcano towered to 7000 meters in height , rivaling even Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, in grandeur


An elephant weighs up to seven tons so it can inflict serious damage to vehicles or cause loss of life. Show respect for elephants at all times. Do not wave, hoot or shout at elephants . look out for temporal gland flow. Visible fluid flowing from the gland between the eye and ear hole is a distinct sign of stress and anxiety . always keep a safe distance between you and elephants at all times . don't block the path of elephants when they approach the road . leave enough space so they can cross without splitting up the herd
