Sun City | The Lost City | Hotels

The Sun City Resort in South Africa would likely rival even the stately pleasuredome Samuel Taylor Coleridge* envisioned in his fabled poem Kubla Khan.

The only difference is that the concept of a resort as majestic as Sun City was conceived by South Africa’s very own visionary, Sol Kerzner. Since the resort first opened its doors to the public in 1979, the sun has not set on Kerzner’s desire to bring to life a “world within a city” where guests of all ages can enjoy themselves to the max.

Set adjacent to the Pilanesberg National Park and with the hugely popular Valley of the Waves as one of its star attractions, Sun City can rightly claim its status as the only “surf and safari” destination in the North West province. Today the resort boasts four world-class hotels – choose between the mythical grandeur of The Palace of the Lost City, the sophisticated elegance of the five-star Cascades, the atmosphere of excitement at the Soho, and the family-friendly welcome of the Cabanas. Plus, multiple restaurants, shops, casinos and two luxurious spas as well as fully-equipped wedding and conference facilities.

By night or day, indoors or out, there is no shortage of things to do at South Africa's top tourist playground. Catch a thrilling live performance or organised sports event in the Superbowl. Be wowed by a spectacular cabaret show. Get a taste of culture at Sun City’s interactive Hall of Fame exhibition.

If a round of golf is more your style, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Sun City with two first-class courses to choose from, both designed by champion golfer Gary Player. These are the famed Gary Player Golf Course and the 72-par, desert-style Lost City Golf Course, known for its plentiful water features including a hazard at hole 13 that is stocked with 38 Nile crocodiles.

Fitness junkies can get their blood pumping with a spin around the TimeChamp trail run or tackle one of Sun City’s mountain bike trail. Sharpen your ball skills on one of the 11 tennis courts or enjoy an adrenaline-fueled watersports session at Waterworld.

Enjoy a laidback Segway tour of the resort grounds or up the ante by soaring over Sun City on the world’s fastest zip slide. And if you’re looking for a high energy action fix, get on down to the resort’s Adrenaline Extreme base.

Explore the wonders of The Lost City’s “ancient” temple ruins, carvings, and grottos, and be enthralled by its 'Shrine of the Sacred Monkey' and mystical Maze.

Outdoor enthusiasts can take the opportunity to master the art of archery, learn to play the Djembe drum, and enjoy an “up close and personal” encounter the highly endangered rhino at close distance.

Experience all the internationally acclaimed Pilanesberg Game Reserve has to offer with a guided game drive, “on foot” rhino tracking expedition or in celebrity-style, from the lazy heights of a hot air balloon, followed by a sumptuous bush breakfast.

With no end of entertainment options for children and adults alike, Sun City truly is the one place in South Africa where “the fun never sets.”

* Samuel Taylor Coleridge completed probably his best-known poem Kubla Khan (aka A Vision in a Dream) in 1797; it was finally published in 1816.

The Lost City has as its centre a 'palace' of impossible opulence guarded by towering elephants lining an immense bridge; it is ringed with man-made lakes stocked with rare birds and fish, pools, forests and a tropical beach with perfect surfing waves - electrically generated. Lit with the glow of a million candles, the Palace is decorated with Renaissance frescoes, hand-carved furniture, mosaic-inlaid floors and towering columns of false tusks and palm fronds. 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, golfingon its superb 18-hole course, watching boxing matches, attending performances by some of the world's most popular stars, lazing in the plush ambience of the complex. And when the day's play is over, there are beds for more than 2000 guests.

A vast entertainment area provides for floor shows, slot machines, gaming tables - all on the edge of Pilanesberg National Park. For over a decade now, the huge Sun City resort complex, which includes the Cascades Hotel, has been one of South Africa's top tourist drawcards, a place to gamble, a place to take in stage extravaganzas and a place to play - especially golf on the superb Gary Player courses. Today the Sun City Resort Complex is one of the world's largest adult entertainment centres, a luxury theme park for grown-up kids. And when the day's play is over, there are beds for more than 2000 guests.

Out of doors, 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 Kerzner-style, from the lazy heights of a hot-air balloon and followed by a sumptuous bush breakfast.
