Non-hunting attractions and activities in North West Province
Relaxing and enjoying the many stunning vistas at leisure is always on tap – whether it’s enjoying breakfast under an acacia tree, watching a spectacular sunset or watching the many animals visit the waterhole right at the bush camp while you read a book is an experience you will never forget.
Elsie’s Spa is quite popular with the wives and daughters of the hunting party who wish to take some time out for a little bit of luxurious pampering. Elsie, a qualified beautician, is our neighbour’s young wife who has opened a luxury spa offering manicures, pedicures, massages, waxes and a host of treatments.
There is so much on offer at Sun City that it is suggested you stay over for a night or two. Hot air balloon rides over the big five reserve is extremely popular with our guests, or enjoy one of the daily game drives and nocturnal game drives on the famous reserve next to the world famous resort. Stay in the luxurious Palace of the Lost City, take an elephant back safari, visit the huge crocodile farm, eat at one of many fine restaurants, play golf, tennis or go gambling. Made famous by the Million Dollar Golf Challenge, Sun City is more than one destination – it’s our local mixture of Vegas and Disney with a real game reserve attached.
South Africa is of course a birder’s paradise – and our area is naturally rich with local species to delight the eye and ear. To date over 250 species have been sighted. Pictured above is the Lilac-breasted Roller (Coracias caudatus), one of many interesting and colorful birds in the area. So, pack your camera and binoculars.
