EXCURSION ACTIVITY SUMMARY (WEDNESDAY 14 FEB)
Sun City is situated in the hills of the Pilanesberg nature reserve. This unique mountainous area in an otherwise flat landscape is the result of an ancient volcano. This rugged landscape offers wildlife unique habitat to thrive in.
The park boasts elephant, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, lion, giraffe, and a host of antelope and smaller game. Your game drive experience will start after breakfast and we will spend 3 hours exploring the park on our own private vehicle.
Platinum Mine Tour Visit
Your Platinum Mine Tour (concentrator) visit will consist of an 8-hour visit to a local mine where you will be guided through the processes involved in the recovery of resources.
