Because of South Africa’s temperate climate, there’s no best time to visit Sun City. The warm temperatures make it a great year-round destination.
It is important to note that during the South African school holiday period, which coincides with the country’s summer season, things can get very busy at Sun City. Accommodation books out very quickly and the mass influx of locals can make for a frenetic holiday experience.
For a much quieter experience regardless of when you choose to travel, The Palace of the Lost City offers privacy and spacious accommodation that makes for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
A calmer Sun City holiday can be had outside of the peak seasons. While the winter months are less crowded, the weather can be slightly less predictable. Also, it’s best to check when booking your holiday as the Valley of the Waves closes down every year for a month in winter for maintenance.
