Sun City Resort Travel Guide

Map of Sun City Complex


Sun City Resort in South Africa – where adults can become kids again and there is entertainment for everyone!


Situated in the centre a volcanic valley surrounded by the slopes of the Pilanesberg Mountains here is a vision created purely for hedonistic purposes. Originally built in the old Bophuthatswana Homeland, when gambling in South Africa was illegal, this resort was created purely to entertain!


The Sun City Resort Complex is one of the world's largest adult entertainment centres, a luxury theme park for grown-up kids. Gaming on the casino tables, golfing on its superb 18-hole courses, watching boxing matches, attending performances by some of the world's most popular stars, lazing in the plush ambience of the complex or just chilling out on the beach next to the manmade ocean!


Two championship golf courses - one with crocodiles at the 13th hole - are bordered by the Pilanesberg National Park (home to the 'Big Five') where a vigorous conservation programme has resulted in more than 300 rhinos numbered among the 10 000 animals in the reserve. The 55 000 hectare park is the third biggest game reserve in Southern Africa. Game-viewing can be enjoyed from specially adapted four-wheel-drive vehicles or from the lazy heights of a hot-air balloon and followed by a sumptuous bush breakfast. There is elephant back riding nearby and rhino tracking on foot.
