Dinning at the Sun City Hotel:

A multitude of entertainment options characterize The Sun City Hotel in the heart of the Sun City complex. The Sun City Hotel in South Africa is for those who want to be where the action is – day and night this hotel never stops pumping! You’ll find tempting treats from the Orient at the Orchard restaurant; South Africa ‘s traditional specialities are served at the Calabash; an interesting selection of light meals and pastries at the Lobby Lounge; peacocks strut past the lavish buffet at the Sun Terrace; and a sophisticated international hotel menu can be enjoyed at Harlequins Restaurant and Bar.

Hot Air Ballooning:

Many guests enjoy the romance of traditional balloon safaris. The Pilansberg is one of the few reserves in South Africa with perfect conditions for balloon safaris. Flights leave early morning and include an itinerary of balloon launch, an hour of drifting over the reserve, a sparkling wine celebration on landing, a full English breakfast and a ‘first-flight’ certificate.

Elephant-Back Safaris:

Lumbering silently through the bush, you will ride atop a family of mighty African elephants. These gentle giants will take you on an unforgettable journey. The exhilaration of the experience is walking through the bush as part of the wildlife. The Elephant Back Safari experience is more than just an elephant ride. Guests are encouraged to interact with the elephants. Game viewing from the back of an elephant has several advantages, not the least of which is that the resident wild life is unaware of the human presence. Safaris are conducted in the early morning and sundown allowing the elephants to feed naturally through the bush between activities, interacting with the other wild animals, swimming in the waterholes and allowing ample time for the elephants to do “elephant things”. In addition to the morning and afternoon elephant back safaris, the guests are also offered a lunch and interaction with the elephants.


Discover this ancient art that conjures up images of William Tell, the Roman Empire and Scottish highlanders. Archers of yesteryear used rudimentary equipment whereas today the equipment is more modern and sophisticated. At the Sun City Adventure Centre modern recurve bows and contemporary equipment such as compound bows and powerful crossbows are used. Archery is about muscle discipline, eye dominance, and accuracy. Target practise makes perfect or so the experts say. 


For centuries drumming has formed part of the African culture. Rituals, celebrations, funerals, healing and initiation ceremonies are marked by the rhythmic beat of drums. Enjoy the interactive rhythms of Africa by taking part in a drum circle and learn to play the Djembe Drum. Music is the universal language, and drumming is the bridge between spectator and participant. It’s primal, heartfelt pulse stirs the senses, making your foot tap in time to the beat. Anyone can be a competent drummer with almost no prior experience.  Drumming brings people together who share the connection of making music together. The Adventure Centre offers guests an excellent manner of communing with a group of people, enjoying the energetic rhythms of Africa.

They handle the arid and volcanic landscape of the Pilanesberg and allow adventurers to explore hidden crevices and ravines that are inaccessible on foot. The adventure trail takes about an hour and a highly skilled guide conducts the trail through Letsatsing Game Park with the possibility of seeing Rhino, Giraffe and other animal species on route. Internationally accepted safety standards apply and no previous experience is needed as instruction in handling the vehicle forms part of the package.  The adventure is not available to anyone under 16. There is a fully supervised circuit event for youngsters.

Clay Target Shooting

You will be surprised at the ease with which you become proficient in shooting the clay targets out of the sky, even when they are propelled into the air from different directions at quicker intervals.
