Win a 2 night stay for 2 at Cascades Hotel (closed)

Posted on 14 December 2019

It has been 40 years since Sun International’s legendary Sun City opened its doors, marking the start of a new era in leisure and entertainment for South Africa. Emerging from the dry African bush in what was then known as Bophuthatswana, the resort, launched by hotel magnate Sol Kerzner, instantly captured the hearts and imaginations of entertainment-hungry South Africans. For the first time, they could see concerts by international bands and artists, and experience the thrill of glamour gambling.

Over time, Sun City has evolved into one of the most exciting and all-encompassing entertainment and leisure destinations in the country. It is where wildlife, vibrant nightlife, golf, outdoor adventure, an award-winning spa, a world class casino and adrenaline pumping fun for all ages combine in one spectacular location. Sun City also borders the game-rich and malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park where visitors can spot the Big Five in their natural habitat from hot air balloons, in safari vehicles, on foot or on mountain bikes.

‘After four decades, we are still inspired to give our guests memorable moments that will live long in their hearts,’ explains Mike van Vuuren, General Manager at Sun City.

‘Our 40th anniversary is certainly an auspicious milestone that we are celebrating with a super charged line-up of entertainment and events. The Big Birthday Bash is on 7 December 2019, exactly 40 years to the day since the resort’s doors were opened to the public. There is an exciting lineup of artists who reflect the diversity and depth of talent available in South Africa.’

Sun City has recently undergone an ambitious multi-million rand refurbishment to revitalise its iconic appeal and ensure that it retains its rightful place as South Africa’s entertainment mecca. Today, visitors have a choice of over 30 restaurants, lounges and bars (ranging from fine dining restaurants to casual and family-friendly eateries); state of the art conferencing facilities and a suite of spectacular activities that have broad appeal. There are now seven thrilling water slides at the Valley of Waves; the Chimp & Zee aerial rope adventure course; the Sun City Bike Park; the Adrenaline Extreme adventure hub; Breakout, the mind-boggling obstacle challenge; the Vortex Lounge, and Sun Central which houses movie houses, the SA Hall of Fame and other fantastic attractions.

Sun City boasts a choice of hotels and accommodation. The Palace is a five-star hotel offering grand African luxury; the five-star Cascades offers secluded luxury, the four-star Soho is the resort’s lively Vegas-style hotel, the three-star Cabanas provides contemporary, island-style accommodation and the resort’s timeshare and self-catering offering, Sun Vacation Club, with a choice of exciting amenities.

“We will not lose momentum garnered over the past 40 years. We continue to source the latest innovations in gaming and leisure to ensure that Sun City remains an iconic premier lifestyle resort on South Africa’s tourism map for another 40 years and beyond. As the old adage goes: life begins at 40,” concludes van Vuuren cheerfully.
