Why go to Sun City

Hidden out in the South African plains, north-west of Johannesburg, is Sun City. A play park for revellers of all ages – with elaborately themed hotels, a laid-back sandy beach, and endless lively activities – a holiday here promises a thrilling ride.

Where else can you hit a round of golf, head out on an African safari, and win big (fingers crossed) at a casino all in one day? With two waterparks, two golf courses and an enormous entertainment centre, a Sun City holiday is jampacked with fun from the get-go.

The hotels here are not just somewhere to crash each night; they’re alluring attractions in themselves. The Palace of the Lost City, for example, is themed around a mythical African Kingdom, with gilded animal statues, murals, and ruined temples set among a jungle of gardens and rushing waterfalls.

Travelling with kids? Whatever their age, they’ll be entertained from sunup to sundown. Brave the zipline across the African plains, hop on a Segway tour, or go surfing at The Valley of Waves’ palm tree-lined pool. Kamp Kwena is the resort’s club for children aged 5–12, which gives you the opportunity for some quiet beach time just nearby.

Outside the resort are two of South Africa’s spectacular wildlife reserves: Madikwe Game Reserve and Pilanesberg National Park. Both are ideal for family safaris and Sun City is a great base for visiting either. You can also take a trip to a nearby sanctuary to see crocodiles (at a safe distance) or spot colourful insects at Butterfly World’s indoor garden.

As the sun dips below the horizon, head to one of the many bars or restaurants to toast another fun-filled day. Alternatively, you could watch a movie, see a show or go dancing at the resort’s in-house nightclub – the nightlife options here are as varied as the daytime activities.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
