Local Attractions

Paul Kruger House Museum – Boekenhoutfontein

“Search in the past for all that is good and beautiful, make it your ideal and build on it your future”. President Paul Kruger’s last message. In the foothills of the picturesque Pilanesberg Mountains in the North-West Province. It is often forgotten that, before becoming President of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek, Paul Kruger was a successful and productive farmer who owned several farms in the Rustenburg district.  The museum stands on one of these farms – Boekenhoutfontein – and encompasses a collection of unique historical buildings offering an insight into Kruger’s life at a time when the Transvaalers were locked in a struggle for sovereignty with the British Empire

Pilanesberg is situated in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province, adjacent to Sun City – just 2 hours away from Johannesburg or Pretoria. An abundance of wild life proliferate in some 580km² of diverse and arresting bushveld terrain.

Zip Slide

Opened in 2004 Zip 2000 at Sun City is the world’s original extreme Zip Slide. For over six years it held the title of the world’s longest, highest and fastest zip slide. With an average speed of 120 km/h over two kilometres and reaching speeds up to 160km/h. It is still one of the world’s longest zip slides. There is a higher zip slide in Alaska, there’s a longer zip slide in South America. But to get the total thrill of speed, distance and varying heights above ground Zip 2000 is the ultimate and original experience.
