Day Trips and Short Tours

Pilanesberg Game Reserve  

The Park ranks among the largest of the national parks in South Africa (it is in fact the fourth largest park) and covers an area of 55 000 hectare. It also has the bonus of being a non-malaria area and is home to the big 5. The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.[ Click here for more info ]

De Wildt Cheetah Centre  
The De Wildt Cheetah Centre was established in 1971 with the aim of breeding endangered species. While the cheetah project was the base from which the Centre launched its conservation ethic, it soon widened to include other rare and endangered animal species such as wild dog, brown hyaena, serval, suni antelope, blue and red duiker, bontebok, riverine rabbit and vultures - including the very rare Egyptian vulture.

Gold Reef City  
Gold and the History of Johannesburg are intertwined. The discovery of gold in the late 1890's led to a gold rush by prospectors from all over the world to the area now known as Johannesburg in the province of Gauteng. Gold Reef City reflects the history of the discovery of Gold and style of life to those who worked on the mines. The center of the City is Shaft No 14 which was started in 1887 and only closed as a working mine in 1971.This mine now offers escorted underground tours which show mining techniques of the early 1900's and those of today and on surface the actual pouring of Gold can be seen.

Lesedi Cultural Village  
GUESTS are welcomed in true African style by the families of Lesedi. Next on the itinerary is a multi-media presentation in the theatre, setting out the origins and history of the African people up to the present day. After singing, dancing and refreshments, it’s time to browse in the living craft market, where vibrant Ndebele murals decorate the walls and courtyards....
As the night closes in, you’ll hear African legends told by a master storyteller in the great oral tradition.
This creates the mood for the feast of traditional dishes from around the African continent. [ contact us ]
Sun City and Lost city  
Sun City is not known as ‘Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure’ for nothing. This extraordinary resort in Bophuthatswana was first created as a gambling paradise when gaming remained illegal in neighbouring South Africa. But liberalisation in the Rainbow Nation saw Sun City pursuing wider pleasures and provided the impetus for the creation of the mind-boggling fantasy world that is the Lost City. Nothing short of extraordinary, here you can experience erupting volcanoes and trembling earthquakes as you journey through the Valley of the Waves waterpark, and suspend your belief as you relive the fictional legend of Lost City!

Balloon Safari’s  
It’s sunrise. Picture yourselves sipping champagne as you float high above the majestic Magaliesberg mountains in a hot air balloon just 50km from Sandton and Johannesburg’s northern suburbs.
The view is stupendous the thrill is indescribable, the silence only punctuated by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal beneath. Hovering gently above the tree tops you can chat with people below or, if conditions permit, your pilot can take you to soar high above the clouds where you can see forever. After landing, savour a hearty farm-style breakfast at our country base.

Cradle of Mankind tour  
Sterkfontein is one of the world's most productive and important palaeoanthropological sites. It is the place where the very fist adult ape-man was found by Dr Robert Broom in 1936. This ancient cave system has over the years revealed a sequence of deposits with fossils dating from about 3.5 to 1.5 million years ago, a period of time which spans the early development of the family of man-the hominids.
In addition to almost 500 skull, jaw, teeth and skeletal fossils of these early hominids, there are many thousands of other animal fossils, over 300 fragments of fossils wood, and over 9,000 stone tools which include some of the earliest manifestations of human culture on earth. Some of the youngest deposits in the cave also contain fossils and tools from the period just prior to the emergence of modern humans, the period ca. 100.000 to 250,000 years ago, most widespread of which are the dolomites of the Transvaal Supergroup. Dolomite, as well as limestone, is slightly soluble in acidic groundwater (groundwater that contains carbon dioxide in solution) and readily forms caves and sinkholes [ Click here for more info ]
