The Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust

The Pilanesberg National Park, situated 50km north of Rustenburg in the North West Province, is managed by the North West Parks & Tourism Board. The Pilanesberg is, however, more than just a wildlife sanctuary to which tourists flock – it has also spurred economic development in the region that in turn has provided social up-liftment in this once largely disadvantaged rural community.

The Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust (PWT) was established in 1999 to provide a medium through which contributions can be made to further conservation and social upliftment. The PWT is a non-profit organisation and is registered with the South African Institute of Fundraising
