The popular Pilanesberg game reserve, just a few minutes from Sun City, was the site of a kidnapping and robbery of two women July 16. The women were driving near the Bakubung Gate when accosted by three men, who locked them in the trunk of their own car, drove to an isolated area in the west of the park and robbed them of their valuables. The women were discovered by maintenance workers, unhurt, 24 hours later. The park has seen little such violence, but the incident is a reminder to remain alert even in seemingly safe circumstances. Authorities have vowed to apprehend the culprits.
