Discover the Lost City of Gold

“The Las Vegas of Africa”- call it whatever you will, Sun City is truly one of the world’s most unique resorts and its fame has stretched far beyond the modest borders of its location in the Northern Region of South Africa. Perfect for honeymooners and families alike, Sun City caters for all tastes and budgets.

For those looking for first class accommodation, look no further than the Palace of the Lost City, a veritable labyrinth of landscaped gardens, water features, entertainment centres, sports facilities and straddling it all, a 328 bedroom luxury hotel- built as a tribute to a fabled ancient African King.

Sun City, unique in the context of world resorts, with a combination of features unmatched anywhere, draws thousands of visitors to its top-quality hotels. Aside from the brightly lit vibrant casinos, the extensive high-end shops, the restaurants, the bars, the theatres, nightclubs and concert arenas, Sun City has magnificent sporting and recreational facilities set in incredible landscapes designed to transport you to another time and place – the legendary lost city of gold.

The magical Valley of Waves has its own wave pool and stretch of beachfront. Entry to the valley is via the ‘treacherous’ Bridge of Thunder, but the perilous journey is well worth it when you arrive on the soft white beach sands and dip into the warm ‘ocean’ waters. Waterslides surround the area and you can test your mettle at the Temple of Courage – a near vertical slide which is sure to have you screaming as you plummet to the waiting pool below.

In the surrounding gardens – or botanical jungle as it should be called – you will find Waterworld, a huge man-made lake which has all sorts of fun activities from skiing to paddling. A stroll further into the jungle will find you in an exotic wonderland of twisting walkways, rope bridges and brightly coloured birds.

Sun City has two world class golf courses -the Gary Player Golf course which needs no introduction, was designed by Gary Player and is the venue for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, an annual golf tournament with total prize money of US $4 385 000; and the Lost City Golf Course which is Arizona desert-themed course that comes complete with real crocodiles in the 13th hole water hazard. This spectacular par-72 course is a cart course, complete with a state-of-the-art clubhouse, and is a short stroll from The Palace of the Lost City.

Those wanting to venture forth on a safari can go on an elephant back ride which can be booked in Sun City. The Sun City resort is also next door to the Pilanesberg National Park. This is a malaria free Big Five game reserve and is the perfect place to go for a miniature safari experience.

Whether it be a romantic couple of days enjoying Sun City’s attractions, a group of friends travelling on a long golfing weekend or a family group on a once in a lifetime holiday, Sun City literally has something to offer all tastes and requirements. Yes, it’s big and brash but that’s half the fun.
