Sun City welcomed back visitors for the first time in September since closing its doors at the start of the national lockdown in March last year. The famed SA attraction gradually increased guests numbers to ensure that it adheres to Covid-19 restrictions.

What to see and do

There is plenty to see and do at Sun City. Discover the thrills at the Valley of Waves or get lost in the Maze of the Lost City.

The Maze of the Lost City, constructed from artificial stone and wood, and creates an illusion of ancient archaeological discovery. It covers a half-acre and is accessed via a 100m suspension bridge from Sun Central.

Then, go on the infamous Tarantula and Scorpion slides or the Viper and the Mamba tube rides. Get a chimp’s-eye view of the Valley of Waves and take a swing at the Chimp & Zee Rope Adventure Park course.

For those who love animals, get an up-close view of some buck when you take a quad bike or mountain bike through the Letsatsing Game Park.
