My Sun City vacation gave me and my family a well-deserved break, in a number of ways. Starting from the set up in our room, which was homely since provision was made for our young ones, to the housekeeper by the name of Elizabeth, who paid us a visit in the evening to find out if we were comfortable in our room. In a nutshell, Sun City customer service exceeded our expectations as a family and that's why we'll call again.1866 438 8677

Days 1-4: Discover Sun CityA representative will be waiting for your arrival at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg for a private transfer to South Africa’s fantastical Sun City, at the heart of which lies The Palace of the Lost City. After checking into your luxury twin rooms in this opulent hotel, the adventure begins and you are free to explore the ‘long-lost civilisation’ of Sun City with its ornate sculptures, fountains, mosaics and ruins set through the emerald green hills of Pilanesberg. There is the Valley of the Waves waterpark to enjoy, along with skiing, bumper boats, boating and other active adventures like mountain biking, horse riding and even game viewing at the adjacent Pilanesberg National Park. Children will be enthralled and entertained at the resort’s animal sanctuaries, jungle gyms, supervised playrooms, arcade and obstacle courses. For a spot of time off, kids can join the special kids’ activity club while parents relax, soak up the views, enjoy fine dining, golfing or an indulgent spa day.
Days 4-7: Safari at KrugerAfter three nights at The Palace, a private transfer returns you to OR Tambo International Airport where you will fly to Skukuza Airport just outside Kruger National Park. From there, a transfer takes you to Lions Sands Narina Lodge, an intimate safari camp on the private Tinga Concession. Your all-inclusive safari experience includes twice-daily game drives, guided nature walks, hippo tours, astronomy, wildlife talks and special meals out in the wilderness. Tinga Concession shares unfenced borders with Kruger National Park, and this part of South Africa is one of the best places for encountering all members of the Big 5. The lodge’s nine luxurious suites offer perfect privacy and lovely views of the Sabie River. The entire treehouse-style lodge is built on stilts among a beautiful canopy of old trees and is linked by wooden walkways. Family rooms are available for groups with children 10 years and older, and each suite has its own private plunge pool. Other facilities include a fun kids’ club and a wellness spa.
