The 'Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex' is the park's primary geological feature and is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its type in the world. A dream come true for the geologist (professional as well as amateur) in you, one gets to see rare rock types and formations making it a fairly unique geological feature. It is located within the Witwatersrand range comprising a vast circular crater of an extinct volcano that last erupted some 1,200 million years ago. Over a period of time, this huge volcano weathered into concentric rings which, today, rise up to 700 meters above the plains.
