A great combination of activity and wildlife viewing on the action-packed family adventure.

Sun City is the perfect family holiday destination with a wide variety of activities and fun to keep the whole family happy. You can while away the hours at the amazing water park with a wave pool, a huge waterslide, or perhaps spend time at the 'beach' by the hotel pool. Why not have your first safari while you are here and venture on a game drive in the Pilanesberg Reserve, this is after all Big 5 country and who knows what you might see. Two days and three nights of fun to be had here.

Then it's off north to the Madikwe Reserve on the border with Botswana. This is where you will have a full-on safari experience backed up with awesome South African hospitality. The experienced guides will show you how it's done and share their knowledge with you on the game drives. If you want to try your hand at bush walking, this can be arranged at an additional local cost, another feather to your bow? Smaller children can be catered for back at camp with exciting nature walks showing them the smaller inhabitants of the area such as millipedes, and older children can join the safari vehicle to go out in search of larger animals that roam the area.

This holiday provides a great balance of adventure and wildlife and is sure to be a hit with all the family. If you have any concerns or wish to tailor this trip to better suit your own family, then let us know, tailor making holidays is what we do best.
