by Cabanas on

The whole point of a holiday is to have fun, right? Correct! That’s why choosing Sun Vacation Club at Sun City Resort is such a smart decision because there’s so much fun to be had, all in one place. With more than 100 things to do, it’s unlikely you’ll hear the phrase “I’m bored” from your kids, while at Sun City.

So what is there to do as a family? Here are our top 5 suggestions:

1. Waterworld:
Sun City’s massive manmade lake is the perfect place for water adventure. You’ll be able to choose from jetskis and tube-rides, lake cruises and more. For an extra thrilling time, try the wake snake – you’ll be shrieking with laughter as you try to hang on!

This is also where you’ll find Long John Silver’s Bumper Boats. To improve on the childhood favourite bumper cars, all you have to do is add water.

2. Outdoor Adventure Centre
Spend some time with the family enjoying the fresh air, sunshine and thrill of 4×4 quad biking safaris, archery, clay pigeon shooting or combat paintball.

Take a game drive through the Pilanesberg National Park and give your kids the priceless gift of seeing Africa’s abundant wildlife, up close. You’ll find rhinos, elephant, lions and more – all on Sun City’s doorstep.

• Sun Vacation Club members’ only special offer: 10% discount on all activities at Mankwe GameTrackers, including game drives in the Pilanesberg National Park. (Terms and conditions apply)

3. Entertainment Centre
A gaming arcade that’s jam-packed with kid-friendly fun, everyone will soon find their favourite game here. From old arcade classics like Pac-Man and Jurassic Park, to modern games like Fruit Ninja – this is gaming heaven. Each game rewards players with tickets, which can be exchanged for cool prizes and toys.

The Entertainment Centre is also home to a movie theatre, an assortment of shops and stalls as well as an impressive selection of restaurants and takeaway joints.

4. The Maze of the Lost City
For a little friendly family competition, take the kids to the Lost City Maze to see who can find their way through, first. It’s the biggest permanent maze this side of the globe, and with dead ends, false turns and twisting paths, you’ll soon lose your sense of direction.


Once you’ve found your way through to the middle you’ll be rewarded at the Pilanesberg Brewery Bar. Offering craft beer tasting for adults and ice cream for kids, this is the perfect place for refreshment. Enjoy the views of Sun City from the Brewery Bar roof, while the kids enjoy space to run and play, through the maze.
