Whether you simply want to relax in luxury, enjoy Africa's wildlife or engage in some adrenaline pumping fun, Sun City resort complex has everything you could desire.
Sun City had its start back in South Africa’s apartheid era. Located in what was previously the homeland of Baphuthatswana, Sun City was originally considered an “immoral playground”. As Bophuthatswana was considered an independent state back then, Sun City was able to offer entertainment that was banned in South Africa, including topless revue shows and gambling. However, today, Sun City is a far cry from “sin city” and is known throughout the world for its glamorous casinos, exquisite hotels, fine dining, grand sporting facilities and top-class entertainment performances.
One of the top attractions at Sun City Resort is the Valley of the Waves. Overnight guests of Sun City are given fee access, but day visitors are welcome to the Valley of the Waves with an admission fee. On entering the Valley of the Waves at Sun City you are greeted by an impressive lagoon with a fantastic wave machine. Exciting rides add to the thrill of this great water park. Those who are brave enough can attempt a face-paced slide down the 17 m high Temple of Courage. A day at the Valley of the Waves is the ideal outing for the entire family and will leave you wanting more.
The Sun City golf courses are eagerly sought after by avid golfers from around the world. Both the Lost City Golf Course and the Gary Player Golf Course are expertly designed and several top golfing tournaments are hosted here. Those who wish to improve their golfing skills can pop in to the Titleist Golf Academy for group or private instruction. Sun City Resort’s guests will definitely want to book themselves on one of the game drives on offer. Day trips take you to the malaria free Pilanesberg National Park where you can view a wide range of African wildlife. Over and above these great activities at Sun City Resort Complex, visitors can check out the outdoor adventure center where activities such as elephant back riding, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and archery are available. Many like to top off their day at the world-class casinos of Sun City or enjoying a meal at one of the fine restaurants.
