Best time to visit Sun City:

Summer (November to February): Summers in the North West are hot to very hot, and it's the rainy season. It's a good time for wildlife viewing in reserves like Pilanesberg and Madikwe, as the vegetation is lush. However, temperatures can be intense for some visitors.

Autumn (March to May): Autumn brings milder temperatures, making it a pleasant time to visit. It's suitable for outdoor activities, exploring national parks, and enjoying wildlife sightings. The temperatures are comfortable, and it's a good time for hiking.

Winter (June to August): Winters in the North West are dry and mild during the day but can get chilly at night. It's an excellent time for game viewing as the vegetation thins out, making it easier to spot wildlife. The clear skies are perfect for stargazing.

Spring (September to October): Spring brings warmer temperatures, and the landscapes start to bloom. It's a great time for nature walks, birdwatching, and outdoor exploration. Wildlife activities continue to be good in the game reserves.
