Pilanesberg Game Reserve covers roughly 221 square miles (572 square kilometers), and has more than 124 miles (200 kilometers) of well-maintained roads and tracks. It’s a popular destination for safari drives. Add an unforgettable Elephant Interaction Safari to your Pilanesberg experience (own expense).
After a morning at Pilanesberg, head for neighboring Sun City for an afternoon of relaxation and fun. The famous resort features swimming pools (own expense), a golf course, a cultural village, and a wide selection of places to eat and drink. Add a guided tour of the Palace of the Lost City (own expense). Sun City has earned its nickname of the ‘Kingdom of Pleasure.’
