Tourvest hosts 50 Alexandra and Diepsloot youth on Pilanesberg game drive

Tourvest took 50 youngsters from Alexandra and Diepsloot on a day trip to the Pilanesberg National Park in the North West province in what was their first experience of a South African game reserve.

The 50 boys and girls were selected for the excursion by Tourvest’s NGO partner Afrika Tikkun and they were treated to a day of game drives, elephant interactions and other bush activities by Gametrackers, a tourism activities business in Tourvest’s Accommodation and Activities division.
