Sun City Travel Guide: 312 reviews and 836 photos

Sun City is renowned as the premier holiday resort of South Africa, offering its visitors a multitude of attractions and activities to keep everyone occupied.
From its World Class Golf Courses, to the excitement of going on an African Safari and trying your luck at winning some money in one of the many casinos, this is a great place to come for a holiday in the sun. Its got four great hotels so suit the needs of all, from those on a small budget, or those wishing to break the bank by stay in in the Luxurious Palace hotel!

One of the many unique things to see been at Sun City includes the Valley of Waves, which is a man made sea with constant wavemaker, really good fun in the sun, and remember, this is really far from the ocean, and that makes it even more cool!!

Its only a short 2 hour drive outside of Johannesburg, so its still close enough if you only fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of the city for a night or so.
In conclusion, if you think all of this is built in a very remote part of the country in the middle of nowhere, making it like this super cool oasis... you cannot miss it!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:For a relaxing break, with lots and lots to do.

    I have not been to SunCity for a while, so I am taking a trip with you. The Sun City Hotel has had a major refurb...which it needed badly.

    what an impressive place.. very opulent looking/sounding. They have certainly gone all out and cater for everyone. Bakubung sounds a good visit also.

    A big baboon barney, huh? Well, Sun City might not seem to sunny after that, I would guess. ha ha

    One day I hope to be able to get to Sun City, even though it does not have a lot in common with the rest of Africa !
