The resorts of Sun City and Lost city are one and the same, and are about a two hour drive out of Johannesburg.

There are shuttle buses that go to and fro Sun City and Johannesburg (these usually pick you up at central hotels in Johannesburg, for example the Sandton Sun Intercontinental Hotel.

There are four hotels in the resort you can stay in, The Cabanas, The Cascades, Sun City Hotel and Lost City Palace. The least expensive is The Cabanas, the most expensive, by far, is the Palace.

Included in your hotel cost is a very generous buffet breakfast, with the highest quality fruit laid on. One thing that South Africa has plenty supply of is excellent quality, succulent fruit :)

Each hotel is fully equipped with all types of facilities. The Cabanas is the least expensive and the one that my brother and his wife's family stay in most often. They go annually.

Of the 3 hotels in Sun City, this is the least formal, and the most relaxed. They have all the facilities you would expect a hotel of this standard to have: Digital TV, television in the rooms, air conditioning (VERY important for this part of the world! The bushveld in South Africa is hot and dry)

It has 380 rooms and leads down to Waterworld.

The Lost City Palace is far more luxurious and has everything you could possibly need at hand for your pleasure.
