South Africa's flagship holiday resort, Sun City is an entertainment mecca just 2 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. With attractions that include a casino, man-made beach, championship golf courses, a safari park and more, it’s no surprise that Sun City is a favourite destination for families, couples and groups of friends. Just because the North Westis a landlocked province, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a beach day! One of the biggest attractions in Sun City is the Valley of Waves with its own artificial beach. Here you can enjoy numerous thrills and even surf the waves in the Roaring Lagoon.
