A great choice for a family stay, located just outside Sun City’s main entertainment hub but close enough to enjoy all there is to offer at the resort. While there is the obvious attraction of the huge waterparks and day-to-night entertainment, there are child friendly trains that meander around the resort, over the waters and past the antelope that graze on the wildlife reserve, bumper cars, up to the minute movie showings, petting zoos, wildlife sanctuaries and even a night club for the tweens (minus the alcopops).

For younger Sun City guests (5-12 years) there is Kamp Kwena with a supervised programme of entertainment to keep them busy all day along with a professional baby-sitting service that operates day to night. And when it’s time to hit the hay after all the day’s excitement then the dedicated family suites offer spacious accommodation with sofa beds and the possibility to connect to an additional double room.
