Pilansberg National Park

Adjacent to Sun City is the beautiful Pilanesberg National Park – one of the largest in South Africa and also a malaria free zone. The park covers an area of 55 000-hectares and its plains are rich and fertile as they were once part of a now extinct volcanic crater. Majestic hills encircle the park and a large central watering hole is ideal for game viewing.
Pilanesberg National Park is home to all of the Big Five and other large game including giraffe, hippo, zebra and crocodile- as well as an extreme diversity of birdlife – over 300 species have been recorded. A visit to the park is always rewarding – guided excursions from Sun City can be taken, and due to the parks’ extended gate hours – both dusk and dawn game drives can be enjoyed. In addition, guests can take their own vehicles into the park and explore at their leisure using the excellent network of maintained roads within the park. There are a number of hides and picnic spots to stop and stretch your legs.

For a truly breath-taking experience, an early morning hot air balloon trip is a must. The Pilanesberg is one of the few parks in South Africa were conditions are ideal for ballooning. Gliding silently over the bushveld offers a unique perspective – then touch down to champagne and a hearty cooked breakfast.
