Holidays to Sun City

The area has four primary hotels: the Palace of the Lost City, the Cascades Hotel, the Cabanas, and the Sun City Hotel, as well as a time share self-catering facility known as the Sun City Vacation Club, which is very popular with those going on Sun City holidays who have a relatively tight budget. Those going on holidays to Sun City can be virtually guaranteed of having a good time just by looking at the impressive number of awards that the resort has racked up just over the course of the last decade, having won numerous titles in categories ranging from Travel and Tourism to Environmental Heritage.

Golf lovers taking their holidays in Sun City have particular reason to celebrate thanks to the presence of two eighteen hole golf courses, both designed by the renowned Gary Player – the Gary Player Country Club, and the Lost City Golf Course. The Gary Player Country Club is famous for being the staging ground of the highly prestigious golf tournament formerly known as the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge, and which is now referred to as the Nedbank Golf Challenge, which is held every year and attracts some of the biggest names in the world of golf to the city.

Those on holidays in Sun City should also check their calendar before booking their trip, as the resort books numerous concerts and other events such as the Miss South Africa and the Miss South Africa Teen pageants over the course of the year.

The two casinos in Sun City are world famous. The Jungle Casino offers more than two hundred and fifty slot machines and the other casino, which is located in the Sun City Hotel, has more than three hundred and thirty three slot machines, in both smoking and non smoking areas. Both casinos offer other traditional casino games such as American roulette, blackjack, poker and punto banco.

For those taking their holidays in Sun City and who may wish to get out and about a bit more, there is plenty to see and do outside of the casinos and golf courses. The beach is a world of wonder in and of itself, offering either simple relaxation or water sports such as swimming, parasailing and water skiing, while there are also theatre shows, an arcade centre to keep the children amused and happy for hours on end, a variety of other sports such as horse riding, tennis, squash and mountain biking, the famous Valley of the Waves water-park, and a number of guided excursions. One place to visit which is just adjacent to the resort is Pilanesberg National Park, a stunning area where tourists can get a good look at some of the country’s most famous animals including buffalo, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinoceroses.

Sun City truly has something for everyone.
