Area Attractions

Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge is located in the heart of the Pilanesberg National Park, an easy drive of 175 km from Johannesburg, 2 km from the local airport and a mere 8 km from Sun City.Legacy Hotels and Resorts International has three of its luxury bush lodges - Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge, Tshukudu Bush Lodge and Bakubung Bush Lodge - situated in the heart of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park. Just two hours' drive from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg, this is the perfect setting for a relaxing family weekend away or a corporate conference.The Pilanesberg National Park is located in the North West Province of South Africa, west of Pretoria and is administered by the North West Parks Board. Unlike most other national parks in South Africa, the Pilanesberg is not managed by South African National Parks. At 572 km2 it is the fourth largest national park in South Africa.The crater of a long extinct volcano is the setting of Pilanesberg National Park - a fascinating alkaline complex produced by volcanic eruptions some 1300 million years ago. Pilanesberg is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world. Its rare rock types and structure make it a unique geological feature.Ancient, even by geological time scales, this extinct volcano is the most perfect example of an alkaline ring complex. A number of rare (but not necessarily economically important) minerals occur in the park. Pilanesberg National Park rates high amongst the world's outstanding geological phenomena.Pilanesberg has survived ages of erosion and stands high above the surrounding bushveld plains. The early presence of man can be seen in the numerous Stone and Iron Age sites that are scattered throughout the park.The area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills - the formation rises from the surrounding plains like a bubble. The structure of the park is termed the "Pilanesberg National Park Alkaline Ring Complex". The very topography makes the area a feast for the eye. Here are syenite koppies, thickly forested ravines, typical bushveld and also rolling grasslands and lightly wooded areas.Off the centre of the park is Thabayadiotso, "the Proud Mountain" and the beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. The Park ranks among the largest of the national parks in South Africa (it is in fact the fourth largest park) and covers an area of 55 000 hectare.Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.

We recently had a company conference at Kwa Maritane. Never before have I met such a gem of a Conference Coordinator as I found in Joyce! She was amazing! And she wasnt the only one! The rooms were terrific, the food was fabulous and the setting great! Whether its business or pleasure you won't go wrong! Go, have fun and relax!

Our first ever safari trip, 3 adults and 1 ten years old child, settled in 2 beautiful rooms with back porch. Good quality meals and wonderful service. We took one pm game drive and one am game drive the following morning, both field guides (Philip and Ralph) were fantastic and very informative, which we spotted lion, hippos, rhinos, leopard and many other species....! The tunnel that lead to a hide is so very special, which we have a great chance to view 16 elephants with babies and all. One can also frequently see herd of zebra and kudu right from the restaurant becalony. Will visit again for sure.
