Sun City is not only a luxury casino and resort but is also a flagship structure associated with times during the Apartheid South Africa. Bordering this entertainment complex, you will find one of the world’s outstanding geological phenomena: a crater of a long-extinct volcano and the result of eruptions some 1,200 million years ago – the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. This area of 572 square km is not only home to most Southern African species but also home to the Big 5, namely lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard.
