    Sun City lake

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 12, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lake is situated in the beautiful resort of Sun City.

    It lies in the lush green garden area just below the resort hotels, alongside the famous Sun City gold course.

    It is not for public activity, if you want water rides you need to go down to the lake for jet-skiing, parasailing etc.

    But for a relaxing sit next to an over-sized and beautiful pond, this is the place to find it at Sun City :)

    The golden city of Johannesburg

    Johannesburg started out when gold was discovered in 1886 and it has developed at a lightening pace since then.

    It's other name 'eGoli', means 'City of gold'. Its large gold resources were found in the Witwatersrand area.

    Johannesburg is a part of Gauteng, which is responsible for 40% of the country’s GDP, which is pretty amazing when you think about it!

    It’s the business hub of the country, and is vibrant and alive, with half of South Africa’s population living here.

    It is not too far from Sun City and definately worth a visit if you can get there. There is so much to see and do there. Have a look at my Johannesburg page for further info :)

    I was fortunate enough to spend a glorious weekend in this very lovely lodge, just minutes from Sun City, which is about 2 hours drive from Johannesburg.
    Its a very short drive from the Pilansberg National Park which plays host to a variety of amazing animals including the infamous Big Five.
    Our guide, Peter, was very enthusiastic and drove us all over the park showing us all the beautiful animals, until it was very dark, and then we had to head back, another great experience.

    Bakubung is a nice place to escape to for a weekend, its got 76 airconditioned, thatched roof rooms that provide fantastic accommodation to all visitors. Our weekend included Breakfast and Dinner. The food was excellent, and there was a great variety!! (Makes me hungry just thinking about it)

    If you want to visit Sun City there is a Shuttle bus that will take you there at a nominal charge. Or if you require transfers to and from the Airport, they will be happy to provide you.
    I would recommend Bakubung as we had a very delightful 2 days stay at the lodge.

    Just a note of the Raoring Lagoon

    Spraying Water Before the Waves

    Well there is 2 sessions in the Roaring Lagoon, the one looks like a ruff sea and the other one is Huge Wages which comes every couple of seconds.

    With the Huge Waves , water starts spraying out of the lion head sculpture in the wall , one by one until they all spray water. Its stops and then you here the sound of something dropping and this huge wall of water starts heading your way.

    Its Great Fun.

    Bongo Drumming

    by GerryFM Written Nov 7, 2003
    African Rythm sessions at Sun City

    Although not neccessarily an off the beaten path item, a really fun activity to do at Sun City is to learn how to play the bongo drum, African Style.

    The beating of African Drums will complete your African Adventure, and you show your skills on your return home!!!
