You won’t be mistaken for feeling like Sun City Vacation Club has been around since forever. Apart from an endless array of activities offered within the resort, it is Sun City’s strategic location on the doorstep of the Pilanesberg National Park that sets it up as the ideal base to explore the Big Five in their natural habitat.
Up close wildlife encounters at Pilanesberg, either self-guided, or through a professional safari tour operator, serve up the perfect add-on to any couple’s or family holiday, all while relaxing and playing in the contemporary luxury of Sun City Vacation club.
Pilanesberg National Park – Safari Options
Pilanesberg National Park’s main advantage over its larger neighbour, the Kruger, is that at 562 square kilometers, you are spoilt with a smaller reserve that is dense with wildlife, offering a much better chance of viewing Southern Africa’s iconic wildlife. As a guest at Sun City vacation club, it means you can comfortably enjoy a spectacular day safari experience in this great open wilderness of the North West province while retiring to your luxury unit at dusk to enjoy the best of nightlife activities at Sun City resort. Pilanesberg is a malaria-free area, with the reserve’s gates open to day visitors from 5.30am – 7 pm during the summer months. Self Guided Safaris are an ideal option for guests to explore the park. All your questions and concerns can be addressed here on the park’s official website.
