Sun City and Madikwe Family Fun

Day 1

Arrive

You will be met on arrival at OR Tambo International Airport and assisted through immigration and customs. Your driver will be waiting to take you to Sun City, a journey of about two hours through changing scenery. This is the perfect getaway for families or couples alike, with plenty to do and see, with the Pilanesberg Private Reserve on the doorstep. Why not unpack, unwind and take a stroll around the grounds and plan your next few days. There are a number of options for dining this evening, so something is bound to appeal.

Day 2

Discover Sun City

Sun City is as popular now as it was when it was built back in 1979 and there is plenty to do for all the family. One of the main attractions is the Valley of Waves, a world-class water attraction where you can spend hours having fun. There are water slides a-plenty and the Roaring Lagoon, a wave pool or the Temple of Courage, a 70 metre waterslide. For those seeking a slower pace, then the Lazy River non-stop tube ride could be the perfect solution. There are two world-class golf courses at Sun City, one designed by Gary Player, and one named after him - they offer two different golf experiences. For those over the age of 12 there is a 2km long zip-line, a sure way to get the adrenalin pumping. After an action-packed day of activities you have a choice of venues for dinner.

Day 3

Sun City

Today you have another whole day to spend at Sun City. After a leisurely breakfast you can set off exploring once more. Why not try out a jet-ski, enjoy a spot of water-skiing, or horse riding. You can also hire bikes to explore more of the resort. After a hard day of adventure and exploring you could finish off with a bit of swimming in one of the three pools, and relax on the private beach complete with palm trees, sun beds and umbrellas or have a pampering treatment at the health spa adjacent to the hotel while you decide where to eat tonight - choices, choices.

Day 4

Transfer To Madikwe

Enjoy a final breakfast at Cascades and perhaps a stroll around the gardens before being collected for your private transfer to Madikwe. The drive will take about two and half hours so you can sit back and relax as the scenery whizzes by. After a warm welcome at Rhulani Safari Lodge, you will have a chance to unpack and settle in before joining the other guests for afternoon tea. This will be followed by a game drive out on the reserve with your qualified guide who will gladly share his knowledge and game-spotting tips with you. There will be a stop for a sundowner, no afternoon game drive would be complete without one. You will head back to the lodge with time to freshen up before a delicious dinner is served.
