Fodor's Expert Review Sun City Hotel and Casino

Sun City Complex, Sun City, North-West, South Africa

This is the original Sun City hotel, housing spacious and comfortable rooms in the complex that houses the resort's gaming casino, banks of slot machines, and other gaming activities. If gambling and nonstop action are your scene, you'll love it. The hotel pool is large, surrounded by lovely lawns and gardens. There's an area just below the hotel decked out like a Tarzan jungle, with palms, artificial waterfalls, and rope walkways. Even if you don't want to gamble at all, there's lots to do in the Sun City complex for all ages, including golf and watersports such as parasailing and water skiing; the Valley of the Waves, a large man-made beach and swimming area with artificial waves; and the giant Slide of Courage, a water slide that is the equivalent of 4 stories high.
