• Sun City safari tours take you into the heart of the famous Pilanesberg Game Reserve. The reserve is a large wild game farm where Africa’s Big Five roam free and can be viewed by visitors throughout the year. Palace guests can enjoy Pilanesberg safari tours from the mighty African skies in a hot air balloon. Weather dependent, the balloon safaris take off from the middle of the park at the crack of dawn, rising slowly and serenely with the glorious African sun, and offering unmatched views of the natural surroundings. Sun City safari game drives – group and private – operate daily and offer you the chance to see all of South Africa’s finest, most majestic wildlife.
