Sun City, unique in the context of world resorts, with a combination of features unmatched anywhere, draws thousands of visitors each year to its four top-quality hotels and recreational facilities including 2 world class golf courses, and the magical Lost City water-park. Only 187 km from Johannesburg, the resort is situated in the bushveld of South Africa's North West province and surrounded by the imposing mountains of the Pilanesberg.
Set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, The Pilanesberg Game Reserve set alongside the Sun City Resort, ranks among the largest of the parks in South Africa and covers an area of some 55,000 hectare. Geologically, the area is world famous since the volcanic origin and resultant weathering of the extinct crater has resulted in a wide variety of landscapes. This provides some of the most spectacular scenery and has the potential to carry a wider variety of game species than any other similar sized game reserve in South Africa. Pilanesberg accommodates virtually every mammal of Southern Africa and is also home to the Big Five.
As mentioned Sun City is also home of 2 Championship Gary Player Designed Golf Courses - The Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf Course. Both of these courses welcomes visitors all year round. Be sure to check availability with one of our expert consultants as the ever popular Championship Gary Player Country Club can be a challenge to confirm!
