South Africa's most famous pleasure resort, Sun City is situated in the crater of an extinct volcano, a mere two hours drive from Johannesburg. The Resort offers a myriad of activities ranging from elephant-back safaris, quad-biking, golf, water-skiing and para-sailing, to simply lazing on the beach or enjoying the water slides in the Valley of the Waves of The Lost City.
Sun City is easily combined with a fine, Malaria-free safari experience at one of three nearby game reserves ... all habituated by Africa's elusive Big Five and home to a range of luxurious, private game lodges. Pilanesberg Game Reserve is situated adjacent to Sun City and is therefore ideal for guests with very limited time at their disposal. The Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg offers guests a very different safari experience; the lodges are small with a maximum of five rooms and undulating terrain. The Madikwe Game Reserve to the west of Sun City is renowned for its wild dogs.
