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 7,000 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 4x4 morning game drive through the Park.

Feel the wind in your hair and the thrill of getting closer to nature in an open-air safari vehicle. Keep your eyes peeled for stealthy predators such as wild dogs, Cape foxes, and spotted hyenas. Then, you will be transferred to Sun City Resort, an oasis of leisure 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. As the sun starts to set you will embark on an afternoon game drive in your own vehicle through the park. After your game drive concludes, depart for your return trip to Johannesburg, where you will arrive at your hotel between 8:00 and 9:00 PM depending on the time you left the Park.

Very good travel to visit so many wild animals, some of them are very close to our car! The whole trip we were hunting just like hunters to find the animals,the guide helped a lot !

Nous avons passé une magnifique journée. Sana, notre guide, nous a donné beaucoup d' explications sur l'Afrique du Sud pendant le trajet et a su repérer la plupart des animaux que nous avons rencontrés dans le parc de Pilanesberg, dont de superbes éléphants ! Le site de Sun City vaut le détour également.
