Sun City

Sun City holidays are like no other experience in Africa. The continent's most unique holiday destination pulls no punches: flamboyant, indulgent and somewhat tongue in cheek, Sun City is a super-luxury resort 2 hours from Johannesburg and home to a staggering range of activities and attractions.

There really is something for everyone: Sun City has casinos, Championship golf courses, a game reserve and entertainment centre - it's even got an artificial beach with surf for goodness sake.

Start the day with a hot-air balloon ride over the wildlife-packed plains of neighbouring Pilanesberg Game Reserve - or keep closer to the ground on an elephant-back safari - and then laze away the afternoon at the shops, by the pool, on the beach. Come sundown, you'll want to change into your evening wear to hit the casino or take in a show, and then ... well, you decide - Sun City buzzes 24/7.

Sun City holidays are perfect for travellers who just want a seamless, hassle-free vacation where everything works and everyone smiles. And as a family-friendly destination we can't think of a better one; kids' clubs and activities, baby sitters and plenty of life guards - if there's one thing you don't have to worry about on a Sun City holiday , it's what the children are up to.

Despite the number of hotels at the resort, in our opinion there's only one place to stay at Sun City - the matchless Palace of the Lost City, an extraordinary 5-star hotel conjured up out of the surrounding Kalahari bush and home to some of the most opulent accommodation in Africa.
