Ntshwe Drive

A Brown Hyaena den site is situated on this road which can provide a rare sighting into these shy and nocturnal creatures on any given day tour.

Pilanesberg has the highest density of Brown Hyaena in South Africa, partly due to the absence of their cousin, the spotted Hyaena and a sighting of this animal can really be a highlight on any tour in Pilanesberg.
