The African bush is a place of magic and mystery, and the Sun City Resort brings you right into the heart of it. Book yourself a place on a true African wildlife safari that will take you right into the world of the fiercest and finest in the animal kingdom. Expert game rangers will make sure you don’t miss a thing in your search for the famed Big Five – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – in the world-acclaimed Pilanesberg Nature Reserve. And you can do so from the comfort of a game vehicle, on foot with a game ranger, on the back of an elephant or horse, or soaring over the savannah in a hot air balloon.
But if you like your nature closer to home, then within the Sun City Resort you can enjoy Animal World and the Bird Sanctuary for a closer look at the majestic birds of prey, or see the crocodiles at Kwena Gardens.
And as the sun sets on your day of adventure, then take a drink to the Elephant Wallow in a nearby private game reserve and watch these mighty creatures enjoy a drink of their own at their waterhole.
The Pilanesberg Game Park is an ideal South African safari venue, as it is Malaria-free, a mere 187 kilometres from Johannesburg and right on the Sun City Resort’s doorstep. It is home to Africa’s Big Five – Lion, African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Rhinoceros and Leopard – and they, along with other spectacular African animals, roam free within the Pilanesberg’s 55,000 hectares of land.

Pilanesberg Elephant Back Safaris offers much more than a unique game viewing experience, but a clear insight into the make-up of these amazing animals. Seated comfortably on your elephant's back, reflect quietly on their magnificence and their role across our African Continent. Visit their website for more information on Elephant Back Safaris.
