This 7-day tour takes families on an adventure of a lifetime, combining two iconic South African destinations that are within easy reach of one another and each offer unforgettable experiences.
Your adventure begins in the renowned Sun City Resort which nestles in the North West province. From the moment you settle into your cabana, the kids will most likely be very excited to explore the resort's top attractions - the largest maze in the southern hemisphere, a two-level entertainment complex, a man-made beach and waterpark, up-close encounters with birds of prey and crocodiles at Animal World, safaris in the neighboring Pilanesberg National Park, or a hot air balloon ride. Sun City has something for everyone!
After an exciting time spent at Sun City, you travel to Madikwe Game Reserve - a pristine wilderness that promises fewer crowds, incredible big five game viewing, endangered wild dog sightings, and luxurious family-friendly accommodation. The fenced-off Tau Game Lodge welcomes families with family-friendly accommodation, a specially designed children's menu, babysitting services, short game drives after breakfast for the kids under six years, a playroom, and a unique children's programme that includes safari gifts, treasure hunts, and arts and crafts activities. Kids enjoy their time at Tau Game Lodge as they learn about the bush from a team of knowledgeable Guides who are passionate about wildlife.
This tour is ideal for families looking for an adventure getaway and some quality time together.
