"Sun City - South Africa's Las Vegas" Sun City by mikelisaanna

Sun City Travel Guide: 312 reviews and 836 photos

Sun City is the South African equivalent of Las Vegas - resort in the middle of nowhere with large hotels and casinos and plenty of entertainment. We stayed in Sun City for three days near the end of our African trip. After driving around Southern Africa for weeks, we were ready for a few days of relaxation by the swimming pool. Sun City has four large hotels in the resort complex. We stayed at the Cascades, where we had gotten a good deal on a room, but also visited the Palace of the Lost City, by far the resort's most expensive and fancy hotel.

We didn't know what to expect when we got to Sun City, but were pleasantly surprised. There were plenty of theings for children to do, and Anna, our 8-year old daughter, had a good time. We had some good meals, enjoyed the swimming pools, played the games in the arcade, and generally relaxed. We're not gamblers, so we did not check out the casinos.

After a couple of days at Sun City, we were nice and rested for our flight back to the USA.

    We stayed at Cascades many many years ago- I see much has changed. Palace of Lost City was not yet built. Good that your daughter had fun.
