Itinerary

Experience a private game drive through Sun City’s neighbour, the Pilanesberg National Park. An experienced field guide will collect you from your hotel at Sun City Resort or for Day Visitors from the Welcome Centre and accompany to the park.  Enjoy this spectacular reserve on a three hour drive all to yourselves. During the drive your field guide will keep you well informed on the park, the game and their primal habits.  You will provide bottled water, however you are more than welcome to bring your own refreshments along.

The park is home to the Big Five and nearly every mammal of South Africa. Keep your eyes peeled for lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, among others. There are also plenty of birdlife, trees and indigenous plants to learn about. Enjoy the abundance of the African bushveld on this game drive.

Not recommended!

This game drive could be so much more pleasant if the driver did not race past other vehicles on the dirt roads for no reason. We saw a good variety of wildlife, but got no info about the park's geology or history and we did...More

Best safari experience of my life!!!

There are no words to describe how unique and amazing this experience was. We are prisiones in cars (or in ours fears) as the animals roam freely in their natural habitat.. Besides, nothing compares to the colours of the sunset in the savannah!! I strongly...More
