The realisation of a dream of one man, Sun City is a mammoth, glitzy entertainment resort located deep in the North West Province’s bushveld. The resort was the brainchild of billionaire hotel tycoon Sol Kerzner, built on the land of an independent homeland allocated to the Tswana people by the then-Apartheid government and the perfect location to circumvent South Africa’s strict gambling laws.
No expense was spared in creating Sun City’s tropical gardens, magnificent swimming pools, realistic rainforest and waterfalls, and sprawling manicured lawns. All manner of entertainment is provided here and a sky train operates between the four luxury hotels and well-appointed timeshare units.
The resort borders the Pilanesberg National Park, the country’s 3rd largest wildlife reserve, giving visitors the added benefit of a safari experience on Sun City’s doorstep. Along with year-round warm weather, an adventure centre, golf courses and an artificial beach, Sun City caters for every type of vacation imaginable. And the 6000 seat all-purpose arena is capable of hosting any business or international event.

2. The only differences between a standard beach and the wave pool at the Valley of Waves water park are that the waves arrive every 90 seconds (up to 2m high) and the water temperature remains constant. The park has several water rides to suit all ages.
3. Take a tour of the living Motseng Cultural Village to gain an insight into the lifestyle and traditions of 8 different tribal cultures. Watch while crafts are being made or consult a Sangoma (traditional healer).
