In the last century, the Pilanesberg served as a sanctuary of a different kind – Mzilikazi’s rebel Zulu warriors passed through the area as they fled the wrath of Shaka. Not long after this, during the Anglo-Boer war, General Christiaan de Wet mean hid from the British amongst these same hills.
Deep in this rugged bushveld, in the heart of an ancient volcano, lies the world's most unique resort. Sun City has a distinct heartbeat and an African rhythm of its own, offers guests an exclusive opportunity to soak up the magic of this region.
Sun City has 2 incredible world-class golf courses set against the rugged backdrop of the Pilanesberg Mountains in the North West region. The Gary Player Country Club and the Lost City Country Club are both par-72 championship golf courses, offering visitors to Southern Africa’s premier resort an exciting and challenging golfing experience.
This African fantasy-world immerses visitors in the atmosphere of an ancient and exotic civilisation. Far from the sea, yet a beach paradise, the Valley of Waves is a main feature of Sun City! Plunge down thrilling water chutes – both open air and subterranean – or bob around on The Lazy River Ride. Tan and relax on a gentle sloping palm-fringed beach while sipping ice cold drinks under the hot African sun. Adventure Mountain is tailor-made for the kiddies, providing a safe environment where they can play on the waterslides and frolic in the shallow pools. Discover the Palace of the Lost City Entertainment Centre where fun awaits young and old alike – video games, restaurants, movies, adult and teenage nightclub and bingo.... the action never stops!
