Next door to the famous leisure and entertainment resort of Sun City, is the Pilanesberg National Park. It may not be very large (212 miles² (550km²) compared to Kruger or some of the other great African parks, but it has a real wilderness feel to it and most of the big animals you could wish to see.
The huge South Luangwa National Park is so wild and remote and full of animals that it would be hard to exceed the safari experience found here. It is one of Africa's most unspoiled places with enormous spaces, a wide diversity of habitats, and a high game density and rarity of wildlife rarely seen in other game reserves. The survival of the valley depends on the winding Luangwa River, crowded with hippos, crocodiles and wading waterfowl, and its numerous tributaries that course through the park.
