Hi there. Pilanesberg nature and game reserve is in the area. The tour is wonderful and you get to see the animals.

Just checking, why do you want to go all the way to that area if you wont be visiting Sun City? Will you be staying close by?

For me, the only reason to go to the area would be to spend time in the Pilanesberg reserve.

Sun City itself, for me, is a big No No.

I am not aware of much else in the general vicinity, other than a visit to one of the activities near Rustenburg. (others may know more)

I am also not too fond of Sun City. I was just asking to get an idea. Where will you be staying for your trip? The drive to Pilanesberg is a few hours away so could be tiring as a day trip.

If you are staying at SunCity they have an information desk with the tour info and different tour operators. They usually fetch you from the hotel and drop you off there.

If you are just doing a day trip this is an option

There is also the option to stay in a lodge and do a 2 day safari

All depends on which time of year you are going. Winter is nice and the animals are easier to spot. During summer they might be hidden away for a good part of the day (therefore sometimes the 2 day safari might be better as you can go out early morning or late afternoon). Rainfall is also higher in summer months.

I think best to decide if you want to stay at suncity and then you can do the tour from there and other tours (see links above)

OR if you want to stay at a lodge and do a 2 day safari

OR if you want to do a day trip
