Wild life and Adventure activities:
The Sun City Resort has a unique heartbeat and African rhythm of its own and is unlike any other Resort destination in the world. This is pure fantasy and your every desire is met. Adjoining the Resort, is the beautiful Pilanesberg National Park, which will delight game viewers as it is a malaria free zone and home to the Big 5. There are several wildlife options for guests to choose from.
Hot Air Ballooning:
Many guests enjoy the romance of traditional balloon safaris. The Pilansberg is one of the few reserves in South Africa with perfect conditions for balloon safaris. Flights leave early morning and include an itinerary of balloon launch, an hour of drifting over the reserve, a sparkling wine celebration on landing, a full English breakfast and a ‘first-flight’ certificate.
Lumbering silently through the bush, you will ride atop a family of mighty African elephants. These gentle giants will take you on an unforgettable journey. The exhilaration of the experience is walking through the bush as part of the wildlife. The Elephant Back Safari experience is more than just an elephant ride. Guests are encouraged to interact with the elephants. Game viewing from the back of an elephant has several advantages, not the least of which is that the resident wild life is unaware of the human presence. Safaris are conducted in the early morning and sundown allowing the elephants to feed naturally through the bush between activities, interacting with the other wild animals, swimming in the waterholes and allowing ample time for the elephants to do “elephant things”. In addition to the morning and afternoon elephant back safaris, the guests are also offered a lunch and interaction with the elephants.
Discover this ancient art that conjures up images of William Tell, the Roman Empire and Scottish highlanders. Archers of yesteryear used rudimentary equipment whereas today the equipment is more modern and sophisticated. At the Sun City Adventure Centre modern recurve bows and contemporary equipment such as compound bows and powerful crossbows are used. Archery is about muscle discipline, eye dominance, and accuracy. Target practise makes perfect or so the experts say.
For centuries drumming has formed part of the African culture. Rituals, celebrations, funerals, healing and initiation ceremonies are marked by the rhythmic beat of drums. Enjoy the interactive rhythms of Africa by taking part in a drum circle and learn to play the Djembe Drum. Music is the universal language, and drumming is the bridge between spectator and participant. It’s primal, heartfelt pulse stirs the senses, making your foot tap in time to the beat. Anyone can be a competent drummer with almost no prior experience. Drumming brings people together who share the connection of making music together. The Adventure Centre offers guests an excellent manner of communing with a group of people, enjoying the energetic rhythms of Africa.
