Sun City Holidays

If you like your breaks in the sun served with a good helping of fun, entertainment and things to do, this could be the place for you.

Famously over-the-top, we love Sun City for its exhaustive list of activities; start your day in the spa, move to the sun lounger, cool down on a waterslide, squeeze in some tennis, enjoy an evening poker game, then sip a cocktail and look forward to tomorrow's game drive.

Combine your stay with glamorous Johannesburg, or visit Kruger National Park for the ultimate safari. 

Destination Highlights
  • A perfect destination for families, with activities to keep all ages entertained
  • Relax with a rejuvenating treatment in the spa
  • Play golf on one of the world class courses
  • Enjoy the thrill of a safari adventure in this malaria-free region
