We are thrilled to announce that Nicholas Froneman, Executive Chef at The Palace of the Lost City, has been appointed as a Director for the South African Chefs Association (SACA). While we at the Sun City Resort were completely elated, we feel that Nicholas must be over the moon!

SACA Making A Difference In Hospitality
With the increase in tourism to South Africa, the hospitality industry is under constant scrutiny. Improvements are constantly being made to ensure that recognised standards are set and adhered to. SACA is instrumental in this process and is constantly identifying the training needs of the industry so as to keep up with the constant drive to improve knowledge and standards.
Our Executive Chef will also be involved in the training of young, aspiring chefs who will hopefully continue to fly the flag for South African cuisine, high and proud.
