Arrival Sun City Resort

Sun City, unique in the context of world resorts, with a combination of features unmatched anywhere, draws thousands of visitors each year to its four top-quality hotels, a Vacation Club plus magnificent sporting and recreational facilities including 2 world class golf courses, and the magical Lost City water-park, The Valley of Waves. Only 187 km from Johannesburg, the resort, situated in the bushveld of South Africa's North West province, is surrounded by the imposing mountains of the Pilanesberg. The resort is an extended wildlife area where Vervet Monkeys and Chacma Baboons can still roam freely.  They should therefore be acknowledged and treated as wild animals.  Should they be fed, they will lose their natural fear of humans and become aggressive and dangerous. Sun City has dazzled the international community with its glamorous casinos, gourmet restaurants, extensive sports facilities & star-studded spectaculars. The full variety of entertainment on offer ranges from slots to safaris; the theatre extravaganza to a games arcade for children; horse riding to golf, the Valley of Waves to The Lost City... whatever it is you're looking for, you’ll find it at Sun City.
