Sun City Surrounds
Why Travel Here?
  • Emerging from the bushveld like an oasis, Sun City and the surrounding Pilanesberg National Park, is a destination for those that like things “over the top” and who intend to spoil themselves.

  • The most lavish and opulent resort in Africa, Sun City is to South Africa what Las Vegas is to America, though on a much smaller scale and with the “City” being one complex in its own right. 

  • While offering gambling, nightlife and neon lights, the major point of difference is that unique aspects of Africa have been captured in the architecture, décor, entertainment themes and general layout of this playground paradise. 

  • Nothing at Sun City is done in half measures, from the large man-made lake, tropically landscaped gardens and superb international golf course to all hotel facilities on offer.

  • The Palace of the Lost City is the flagship of the four Sun City hotels that lives up to, if not exceeds, its name, with luxury, wealth and meticulous attention to detail creating an experience second to none.

  • The Palace’s spacious suites all have superb views of either the Valley of Waves or the subtropical jungle surrounds, complete with massive waterfalls. 

  • The premier restaurant at the Palace is the Villa del Palazzo, which overlooks the pool. 

  • Water sports on offer all centre around the lake and include: parasailing, windsurfing, skiing and sailing. 

  • Alternative sporting activities include: tennis, swimming, horse riding, volleyball, squash, bowls and ten-pin bowling. 

  • The Entertainment Centre offers non-stop entertainment; from the casinos to slot machines, virtual reality videos, bingo, cinemas, cocktail bars, restaurants and various exclusive boutiques. 

  • International rock star concerts are scheduled throughout the year, as well as various extravaganzas and variety shows. 

  • ​The area has hot summers (September to April) and cool, dry winters (May to August). 

  • Best to visit during the cooler winter months, although Sun City is open all year round.

How to get there

By air
The Pilanesberg airport is 7 km northeast of the entrance to Sun City and there are daily flights from Johannesburg. 

By road
Approximately two hours from Johannesburg the road is unfortunately not that well signposted so one should keep an eye on the map - either go via Rustenburg or via Brits.
