The Wild Animals Of The Game Park
When I think of Africa my mind has a vision of wild animals in open space and not confined to being behind bars in a local zoo.
My dream came true when we had 4 days at Sun City Resort and took a late afternoon safari into the Pilanesberg National Park. The photos you see are some of the wild animals we saw during our 3 hour journey through the park.
Something I will always remember and treasure. The safari into the Pilanesburg National Park.
Bird watching in Sun City and the Lost City
Yes. you might think I am meaning watching the pretty lasses on the beach in the Valley of the Waves, but I am talking of the feathered variety :)
The wild bird life here is simply amazing. You CANNOT come here sans your camera!!!!
I particularly like the aviary area, it’s not huge but there is a decent array of birds there. I far prefer seeing birds in their natural habitat though.
This is quite a long link, but is the one which shows the rather long list of birds found in this area! It is rich with wildlife.

CITY OF SUN, SUN CITY
Sun City Resort has a unique heartbeat and an 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. There are four world-class hotels including the magnificent Palace of the Lost City that glitters like a jewel beneath the African sun, brilliant in its rain forest surroundings and luxurious in its detail and design.
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.
Sun City Fun Guide , a great Map showing the area.
The activities at Sun city Resort Casino are too numerous to mention , luckely Lori saved this Fun Guide of Sun City.
I will show this Map in 3 Tips because the print is too small to read. The memories of Sun City are enormous , and I wish we had more time to see the whole Sun City , it is like a small City.
Most outstanding memory is the incredible beautiful Palace Hotel ,with the awsome Fountain in front of the Hotel and an awsome sculpture display that features two Cheetahs chasing bucks (antelopes) animals were life size and made of Bronze. We were not allowed to go inside the Hotel because we were no guest there.Also the Casino , and te Valley water park with its wave pool.Some day we love to go back there.
Well if you head for the Valley of the Waves don`t dispair as you can rent anything from a towel , locker and the tubes for the tube rides and for the roaring lagoon. You can`t miss it as its situated next to the Toilets and Change Roooms and they have a small arcade centre on the right hand side.
