About an hour and a half's drive from Johannesburg, through the former 'homeland' of Bophuthatswana lies the Pilanesberg National Park. This beautiful and unspoiled park is home to the famous Big 5. We will arrive in the park at around 8am, and after enjoying a sumptuous breakfast, we will start our first Game Drive. With some luck we will see Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino, Leopard and Lion. After lunch at the Pilanesberg Center, we embark on our second Game Drive for the day.
Duration : Full Day

The Krugersdorp Game Reserve lies south west of Johannesburg near the picturesque town of Krugersdorp. Here you will be able to view some of the 350 bird species, 15 different antelope species, White Rhino and with a little luck Lion, who are all residents of the park. Even if you don't see lion in the game reserve, you will most definately get the opportunity to get better acquainted with these beautiful cats at the Lion Park near Randburg.
Duration: 8 hours approximately


Observe close-up over 10 different species of antelope, Ostriches and of course at least 50 lions on this 150 ha park.

A drive along EGOLI (the place of gold) to Gold Reef City, there we will go underground (220m) and learn more about the old mining days in South Africa. Gold Reef City is a replica of a working mining village, and shows us how miners worked and lived at the beginning of the "Gold Rush". Afterwards we visit down-town Johannesburg and the "Roof of Africa" at the Carlton Center, still the highest building on the African Continent.
Duration: 6 hours approximately


We visit the South African Mint in Centurion and drive on to Pretoria. Here we will take in the splendour of the Union Buildings where Nelson Mandela was inaugurated, and the heart of the city, brimming with historical sites and statues, such as the Voortrekker Monument, Kruger Museum and Church Square.
Duration: 5 hours approximately

The drive to Sun City takes us through the former "homeland" of Bophuthatswana. Sun City is a vast "Resort Hotel Complex".
