 See lion on a Madikwe Safari and combine with a Sun City holiday

Madikwe, Waterberg & Sun City

North and west of the commercial centre of Johannesburg, you will find several malaria free game reserves. Madikwe Game Reserve on the border with Botswana is one of the largest. Although lesser known than Kruger, it is highly rewarding and offers a luxury safari experience in a wonderfully wild setting. It is renowned for outstanding predator sightings, especially lion and the endangered wild dog for which this reserve is so famous. Over 60 different species of mammals can be found here.
 
There are many smaller private game reserves in the Waterberg Mountains and at Welgevonden region, some of which offer horseback safaris, cycling and walking safaris.
 
This region is easily combined with the resort of Sun City, which is only two hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Sun City offers year-round sunshine and a wide array of leisure activities, including two famous championship golf courses and the big-five Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Johannesburg
The commercial centre of South Africa, this bustling city is known locally as eGoli – the Place of Gold – and requires at least two days to see its key sites. The Hop Off Bus is a convenient way to take in the highlights including the Apartheid Museum, Golf Reef City, Newtown, the Mining District, Constitution Hill and Gandhi Square. On a tour of Soweto you can visit the home of Nelson Mandela and other monuments to the apartheid struggle, and at the Cradle of Humankind you can see amazing archaeological finds from the Sterkfontein Caves.
 
Pretoria
The pretty administrative capital of Pretoria (now known as Tshwane) has many historic buildings, the impressive Voortrekker Museum and a working diamond mine. Lesedi cultural village offers a fascinating insight into tribal life.
 
Mapungubwe
Driving further north to the Limpopo River, you can visit the archaeological World Heritage Site at Mapungubwe, where the golden rhinos were found. From a good vantage point, you can see across the river to both Zimbabwe and Botswana.
