Guests are collected at their hotel for an early start and continue North West on a two-hour drive. After crossing the Hartebeespoort Dam we drive through Platinum country before we enter the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve. We spend the morning game viewing with our guide. This is a BIG FIVE reserve. After you have taken in the nature we drive you through to Sun City.
Sun City was developed by the hotel magnate Sol Kerzner, and was officially opened on 7 December 1979. In those days, Sun City was located in the Bantustan of Bophuthatswana, whic was declared an independent state by the South African government. Because Sun City was part of Bophuthatswana, it was allowed to provide entertainment such as gambling and topless revue shows, both of which was banned in South Africa at the time. Sun City was eventually re-incorporated into South Africa when Bophutatswana became part of South Africa again in 1994.
All facilities e.g. Golf, Valley of the Waves, The Palace, etc. at own expense. We depart at around 17:00 for your return trip to your hotel. Price includes: entrance fees at Pilanesberg Game Reserve and Sun City. Lunch for own account.
