SUN CITY RESORT ACTIVITIES
The following activities and entertainment are available to guests staying at Sun City Resort.

VALLEY OF THE WAVES
The Valley of Waves, which legend declares is the original "Valley of the Sun", is the master of recreational water-parks in the world; a pleasure Kingdom for thrill seekers. The Valley of Waves is where visitors can surf 1.8m high waves, plunge down the Temple of Courage and sunbathe on swathes of white sand

Located in The Lost City, the Valley of Waves is a water theme park with exceptional recreational features and activities. One of the rides, the Temple of Courage is an extreme slide with a 17-metre drop. Brave-hearts drop 28 feet down a 70-metre chute, hurtle under a bridge and plunge into the sparkling pool below. This pastime is not for the faint hearted.

The 500m long Lazy River will carry visitors on a gentle current past wonderful attractions. There’s a gentle sloping tropical palm-fringed beach and Adventure Mountain’s is children’s paradise with waterslides and pools where they can play or explore in safety. A team of expert lifeguards patrol the Valley of Waves.

The screams of exhilaration reverberate off the surrounding rock face of this amazing water park, which has been designed to resemble the re-emergence of a lost civilization.

Take a walk in our beautifully landscaped gardens situated in the Valley of Waves. Each trail covers a different habitat and many bird and plant species can be viewed.

WATERWORLD
A beautiful lake surrounds the Cabana's hotel and offers pleasure to all who revel in water sports. The range of water sports is radical, the pleasure intense.

Jet Skiing - Try your hand at a watersport that will take your breath away - as you let the throttle go, you feel the roar of the engine between your legs and the erratic pounding of your pulse. Jet skiing is raw power and your craft is set to perform. At Waterworld there are Jetski facilities for beginners and for those with more experience. Come and shred water on our lake.

Water skiing - Water Skiing is considered to an extreme sport and lovers of the sport say it is all about making a splash. As you pull out behind the high powered ski boat, the water rushes up to meet you as you gingerly cling to the rope, balancing precariously until the power of the engines levels you out. The thrill of crossing the wave and the power of the spray of the shalom ski is an exhilarating and giddy sensation. There is nothing to beat it on a hot African summer's day.

Parasailing - A parasail that keeps you grounded - well almost. As you soar above the tree-line, you feel the gentle throb of the power boat anchoring you to the line, but it's tenacious and that's the adrenalin kick. You gently sway in the wind then nose dive like a swallow as you plummet towards the water, and then suddenly tango into the wind with an effortless ballerina's pirouette.


HORSEBACK RIDING

The dense rugged bushveld of the Sun City Resort lends itself to horse riding. Take a gentle canter around the resort on horseback, meander through the indigenous forests accompanied by experienced guides and enjoy the splendour of this ancient volcanic landscape, with a brisk walk or a leisurely canter.

One of the finest ways to experience the bushveld is on horseback. You might surprise small game such as bushbuck or duiker and there is also a wide variety of bird life. All rides are led by experienced riders/guides and all riding abilities are catered for. Guests are taken out on either experienced or novice rides so that everyone in the group enjoys a similar experience.
 

Hot Air Balloon Safaris  - In the early morning, a burst of colour emerges against a flawless sunrise backdrop.
