The Palace is the most exclusive of the four hotels on the Sun City Resort and a member of Leading Hotels of the World, the most ostentatious and iconic hotel in South Africa – the Palace just takes the breath away when you walk into the lobby, real size statues of elephants for example. Marble is in abundance and the architecture and artefacts are simply unbelievable. The Cascades is more affordable 4 star property on the Sun City complex.
Sun City is 187 miles east of Johannesburg in the Bush veld North West Province, within the majestic Pilansberg mountains – stunning scenery all around with two marvellous challenging golf courses designed by Gary Player – with superb bunkering, water hazards and changes of elevation across wonderful natural terrain. The region close by has extended areas of wild life to visit in the wild for those who enjoy the big outdoors – you have a great opportunity to see the big 5 – Buffalo, Rhinos, Elephant, Lions and Cheetahs! For those who enjoy a flutter the Casino at Sun City is the best in South Africa and is stunning, easy to lose a lot of money here in the blink of an eye.
The Gary Player Country is still regarded as one of the 3 courses in South Africa and many think that the Lost City course which opened 10 years later is a better design, one thing is for sure you do not need to go off resort to find other golf courses, these are two stunners!
We recommend you combine a stay here with the Legends Golf Resort in the region not too far away from Sun City.
