We are located in the Pilanesberg area, 8 minutes from Sun City, and offer an opportunity to see many of Africa's predatory species at close quarters. Qualified, knowledgeable guides share interesting information on each animal, while child-friendly tours include treasure hunts, refreshments and fun activities.
LIONS / LEEUS
Lions are the second largest living cats after tigers. Unlike most other cat species, lions are very social felines. Male lions are easily recognised by their manes. A group of lions is called a pride and typically consists of a male, a couple of females and their offspring.
CHEETAHS / JAGLUIPERDS
Cheetahs are the fastest land animals, with the ability to accelerate from 0 to 103km/h in 3 seconds. This is faster than most super cars. They can reach speeds between 112 and 120km/h in short bursts, covering up to 460m.
LEOPARDS / LUIPERDS
Leopards have relatively short legs & a long body with a large skull. They are extremely successful in the wild due to their opportunistic hunting behavior, adaptability, speed (58 km/h (36 mph), ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass, and stealth.
AFRICAN SERVAL / TIERBOSKAT
Servals have the longest legs of any cat, relative to their body size. The toes are also elongated, and unusually mobile, helping the animal to capture partially concealed prey. Another distinctive feature of the serval is the presence of large ears and a special bony structure in the skull, indicating a particularly acute sense of hearing.
SPOTTED HYENAS / GEVLEKTE HYENAS
They unique & vital components to most ecosystems. Since they don't have claws, they have to catch their prey in their teeth. their calloused feet with large, blunt, non-retractible nails are made for running and making sharp turns.
BROWN HYENAS / BRUIN HYENAS
They have very powerful jaws; young hyenas can crack the leg bones of springboks in five minutes, this ability deteriorates with age though as their teeth gradually wear. Their social structure works on an alpha male and alpha female.
Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan". They can move up to 80% their own body weight in sand in one day by digging.
BENGAL TIGERS / BENGAALSE TIERE
Bengal tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh. The largest known Bengal tiger was a male with a head and body length of 221 cm, a shoulder height of 109 cm and a tail of just 81 cm, perhaps bitten off by a rival male.
