Romantic Sunrise Hot-Air Balloon Safari
Nothing says ‘romance’ than an early-morning, hot-air balloon safari over the African bush. As one of the most romantic things to do at Sun City, this unique activity will see have you floating above the Pilanesberg National Park while the sun rises. Apart from the occasional hiss from the whisper burners heating the balloon above you, all that you will hear is the wind, birdsong and the majestic silence of Africa.
