Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Experience a private game drive through Sun City’s neighbour, the Pilanesberg National Park. An experienced field guide will collect you from your hotel at Sun City Resort or for Day Visitors from the Welcome Centre and accompany to the park.  Enjoy this spectacular reserve on a three hour drive all to yourselves. During the drive your field guide will keep you well informed on the park, the game and their primal habits.  You will provide bottled water, however you are more than welcome to bring your own refreshments along.

    The park is home to the Big Five and nearly every mammal of South Africa. Keep your eyes peeled for lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, among others. There are also plenty of birdlife, trees and indigenous plants to learn about. Enjoy the abundance of the African bushveld on this game drive.

    Daryn was our guide and was able to read the behavior of the animals so well, explaining to us what their behavior indicated - we felt so comfortable although we were right alongside a herd of elephant - we saw rhino, a leopard, crocodile and hippos plus all buck - Daryn was

    Our party of 5 did two private game drives this week at Pilansberg. Saw the big five and the game ranger was excellent, but what a disappointment to see the pathetic offering for sundowner drinks. Spending R6500 per drive you would at least expect gin and tonics, beers, wine and

    Good day DazzaCanto We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with valued and constructive feedback regarding your experience with us. It is a little difficult as with Sun City being a family orientated resort we have many families with children of all ages going on our game drives. Where possible when more than one truck is going out on the scheduled drive we try to put the families with small children together. However, on that specific day, only one truck was booked for the scheduled drive you were on. We have communicated the concerns raised to the relevant department heads. Kind regards from the Mankwe GAMETRACKERS team.

    I took my two nephews, 12 and 8, on this night game drive and they loved it. Our guide was funny, informative and attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this no-frills experience. Don't expect champagne at the water hole - - this is a budget drive, but it was all we
