Africa is the most alluring continent on earth and our wildlife lures travellers to explore our wide open bushveld savannahs. Nothing prepares you for a close encounter with a wild animal – you can feel your heart pounding and the erratic leap of your pulse as ochre eyes bore into your soul. Sun International takes game viewing to a whole new dimension with unique trails and safaris that involve walking, horseback riding, canoeing, 4 x 4’s and even Elephant-Back Safaris.
Sun City Resort – North West
Elephant Back Safaris
Elephant-back safaris are available in the Pilanesberg National Park which is adjacent to Sun City Resort. Lumbering through the bush atop a mighty African elephant is an unforgettable journey. The experience is intensely personal as you get to spend time with the elephants – feeding, touching and watching them play at the wallow and taking mud baths and even touch their rough textured hide. Game viewing from the back of an elephant has several advantages, not the least of which is that the resident wildlife is unaware of the human presence.
Safaris to rekindle your spirit
On the doorstep of the Sun City Resort is the rugged 55 000 hectare Pilanesberg National Park, which will delight game viewers as it is a malaria free zone and home to the Big 5.
Ride and Roar
