While staying at Sun City it is well worth taking part in a guided game drive or excursion into the Pilanesberg National Park. A variety of game drives are on offer through GameTrackers - including early morning and night drives either privately or as part of a group. Daily game drives are between 2 1/2 and 3 hours in duration and your expert guide will be able to offer insight and interesting information into the areas you will visit and the animals you will view.

For a truly breath-taking experience, an early morning hot air balloon safari is a must. The Pilanesberg is one of the few parks in South Africa were conditions are ideal for ballooning. Flights take place in the very early morning and gliding silently over the bushveld at sunrise offers a unique perspective - then touch down to champagne and a hearty cooked breakfast.

Also on offer, and an experience of a lifetime, are elephant back safaris and elephant interaction at the Elephant Wallow. Guests are able to feed, touch and interact with these amazing and highly intellgent animals.
