Tour description provided by Viator

Spot the "Big Five" at Pilanesberg Nature Reserve then relax at the unique Sun City resort on a packed day trip from Johannesburg. Combining two very different destinations in one tour, it's a great way to experience all that South Africa has to offer.

In the morning you'll go game viewing in the immense Pilanesberg Nature Reserve. With over 7,000 animals in the park, your search for Africa's "Big Five" - elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and African buffalo - is sure to be eventful. Additionally there is an optional unique Elephant Interaction Safari available(on own account). Pilanesberg Nature Reserve has over 124 miles (200 kilometers) of good-quality roads, making it one of the best game reserves in South Africa. Anything is possible on an African safari, so keep your eyes and ears open! In the afternoon you'll travel to the world's most unique resort, Sun City, deep in the rugged bushveld in the heart of an ancient volcano. You have the opportunity to spend the afternoon at Sun City, "the Kingdom of Pleasure", at your leisure. With so many options to choose from, there's plenty to occupy your free time. Attractions include a golf course, Butterfly World, Cultural Village, wave and swimming pools (own account), Lost City, and numerous bars and restaurants. There is an optional guided tour of the Palace of the Lost City available on your own account.
