Sun City Guide

This vast casino and entertainment complex sits in a valley of the Pilansberg hills, less than two hours’ drive from Johannesburg. A dizzy array of options including; gambling, golfing, game viewing, watersports, shopping, a water park, or simply sun bathing beside the many exotic pools all make this mini ‘city’ popular with locals and tourists alike.

Sun city comprises of a linear complex of hotels and casinos, fronted by several golf courses and a man-made lake. The centrepiece is the Palace of the Lost City, arguably the most ornately detailed and exquisite themed hotel in the world. The African-themed exterior, comprising of turrets, sculptured animals and a jaw dropping garden with lakes, ponds, artificial waterfalls and lush vegetation leave visitors astounded.

Two other hotels, the Sun City Hotel and the Cabanas are more down to earth and affordable, but equally as exotic with huge tropical swimming pools and gardens, and a number of restaurants and cocktail bars to suit various budgets.

The entertainment complex sits between the Palace and Sun City hotel and has several casinos and one arm bandits. If you’re lucky you can catch an international artist performing in the 15,000 seat auditorium, alternatively there are bingo halls, endless games for kids, plenty of shops and food for all tastes.

The best fun is had at the Valley of the Waves waterpark, which sits below the Palace of the Lost City. It features many water slides, a man-made beach with perfect sand and manufactured waves, and a ‘lazy’ river loop, all providing fun for the whole family.

Sun City has two world-class golf courses, which meander around lakes and ponds and host the Million dollar challenge every December. A number of watersports, such as windsurfing, waterskiing and parasailing are available on the man-made lake. There is also a game reserve nearby and sunset game drives reveal an impressive array of animals such as lion, zebra, buffalo and giraffe, among others.

By night Sun City comes alive, whether you prefer idly emptying your pocket into a one arm bandit, trying your luck at Roulette, dancing, eating, watching a movie or enjoying a cocktail under the stars.

The closest international airport is in Johannesburg, with well-organised shuttle services (2 hour ride) to Sun City. A short air shuttle is also available, but many prefer to hire their own car so that they can enjoy the scenic drive out.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
