Pilanesberg Nature Reserve
Pilanesberg & Sun City : HAPPY METER
Departure 06h00 to 18h00 (Later departures can be arranged)
Feel the excitement of knowing you are about to take a journey into uncharted areas where it is you and Africa’s most feared creatures by exploring their territory, by their rules. You will be collected from the Hotel at 06h00 and proceed to the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve that spans an area of 550 square kilometers, the home of the BIG FIVE. Here we will drive around in the safety of our vehicle and feel the tension mounting that at any moment just around a corner you could drive into a herd of elephant or the king himself the lion or if luck spot the ever elusive leopard as he lies on a rock or in a tree watching you and enticing you to make a mistake. With hunger setting in we will stop off in the sticks and be treated to a Gourmet lunch surrounded by Mother Nature. Without a doubt you will feel the sensation of total tranquility of the African bush and know that that feeling will linger with you for eternity. After about 4 to 5 hours of game drive we will set of once again for Sun City the jewel of the North West.
(Sun City is Optional and if not done we will stay the extra 2 hours within the Nature Reserve.)
Here we will walk along the famous Gary Player Golf course, up through the forest onto the swing bridge into the Cascades Hotel where we proceed to the top floor that overlooks Sun City. We then head for the Elephant Bridge that looks over the Lost City and Valley of the waves where you will have your photo taken standing beneath the monkey fountain. Due to Security reasons we are not permitted to the Palace but a quick drive past allows you to see the beauty of its architecture then head out for Chameleon African Craft market. Here you will have the pleasure of walking around an area with 160 different stalls all enticing you to purchase a gift for a loved one back home.
Once you have satisfied you purchasing needs you can sit back and relax as you are whisked back to your hotel and know that you have been touched by Nature herself.
