Full description
Depart at 6:00 AM from Johannesburg for a full day excursion to explore Pilanesberg National Park and Sun City Resort. Sit back and enjoy the two-hour journey to Pilanesberg, passing by the scenic Magaliesberg Mountains and the picturesque Hartbeespoort Dam. The Pilanesberg National Park lies in a caldera of an extinct 1200 million-year-old volcano and is dramatically beautiful with mountains, plains, wooded valleys and dams. Over 7000 animals roam freely across the spectacular volcanic landscape, including the Big Five, predators and a large variety of antelope. Mankwe Dam, at the center of the reserve, is a large watering hole that draws animals and birds to it on a daily basis. See all this beauty and more on a 3-hour morning game drive through the Park in a minibus.

Then, you will be transferred to Sun City Resort, an oasis of leisure, flamboyance and relaxation that shimmers in the sun, only 1 km away from the National Park. The world’s most unique resort is internationally renowned for its glamorous casinos, gourmet restaurants, extensive sports facilities and star-studded spectaculars. After an orientation tour, enjoy some free time to have lunch or stroll through the beautiful gardens.

In the afternoon, return to Pilanesberg for another exciting 3-hour 4x4 game drive. Feel the wind in your hair and the thrill of getting closer to nature in an open-air safari vehicle. As the sun starts to set, keep your eyes peeled for stealthy predators such as wild dog, Cape fox and spotted hyena. After your game drive concludes at 6:00 PM, depart for your return trip to Johannesburg, where you will arrive between 8:00 and 9:00 PM.
