If you’re looking for the ultimate holiday resort in South Africa, look no further than the internationally acclaimed Sun City resort. This spectacular holiday destination features a plethora of activities which have been carefully chosen so as to offer guests the most diverse and entertaining experience possible. If you were only going to visit one place whilst in South Africa, Sun City would be a most enjoyable choice.
This mega-resort is situated deep in the heart of the African bushveld from which its unique atmosphere draws inspiration. It is said that the city beats to an African rhythm and upon arriving you’ll find yourself cast into an African fantasy. Accommodation takes the form of four world-class hotels which form part of the city. The most famous of these – the Palace of the Lost City – is a true gem. Besides being architecturally stunning, the Palace is surrounded by stunning rain forest and it offers top-class services to its guests. Other accommodation can be found at The Cascades, the Sun City Hotel and the Cabanas.
Leisure activities take precedents at this amazing, luxury resort. Fans of golf will find the Lost City Country Club which was built in 1992. This unique par-72 course has been designed to bring the rugged beauty of the South African countryside closer to the golfer. Rated as one of Gary Players favourite courses, the courses features several more ‘unusual’ obstacles such as the 38 crocodiles which inhabit the water hazard on the 13th hole. While you may not be able to retrieve your ball from the hole, no one has fallen victim to these vicious-looking predators yet. Youngesters can imitate their parents and enjoy the Adventure golf facility, or they might try go-karting, ten-pin bowling or play games at the video arcade. Small children can be left in capable hands at Kamp Kwena while adults while away their hours at one of two casinos or take in a naughty-but-nice adult show.
If the weather is good, the Valley of Waves is always a popular choice. A central feature of the resort, this 18 hectare playground features pools, slides, fun rides and much more – all under the watchful eye of qualified lifeguards. It has hosted numerous concerts, events and functions and is the closest you can get to the sea with out the worry of pollution, sharks or other fish. Hop into a ‘tube’ and enjoy an idle ride down the Lazy River or scream your lungs out while you hurtle down The Temple of Courage. The Wave Pool is a great place to test your surfing or body-boarding skills while Adventure Mountain provides hours of entertainment for little ones. Other attractions in the area include a Botanical Garden, The Bridge of Time, the Monkey Spring Plaza, the Observatory Bar and the Royal Baths.
Of course, no trip to Africa would be complete without a visit to one of the country’s national parks. The scenic Pilanesberg National Park is situated right next to the resort. Home to the big five and completely malaria free, this park is easily accessible to any of Sun City’s many visitors. Sun City is an unforgettable experience for both youths and adults as it captures the imagination and caters to your every need. Make sure that this amazing resort is part of your holiday itinerary for your next South African holiday.
