For those feeling active, explore Sun City on a guided Segway tour, play a game of tennis or choose from one of two championship golf courses. For tropical themes, head to the Valley of the Waves, Sun City’s premier waterpark, offering thrilling water slides, lazy rivers and a palm-fringed beach for those looking to switch off and relax.

Africa’s Kingdom Of Pleasure

A holiday in South Africa would not be complete without a bucket-list safari experience. Mankwe Gametrackers Outdoor Adventure Centre offers a wide variety of fun activities for all the family such as game drives through Pilanesberg National Park where you can catch sight of Africa’s famous Big Five in their natural habitat.

For the history and culture of this region, a Leeto-Kgolo Village Tour will take you on a journey through four Bakgatla heritage sites, providing an insight into old-time traditions and the lifestyle of the indigenous people of Pilanesberg, the Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela tribe.
