    Bridge of Time

    Visiting the bridge by day is totally different to visiting it by night. During day time, you just hear the build up to the volcano "erupting" with all the animals shouting out warning signs. At night time it is all lit up and they tell you a lovely story about the eruption. The bridge is guarded by mightly African Elephants, on either side. This bridge links the Entertainment Centre to the Valley of the waves. On the hour throughout the day it will start rumbing giving the impression that its a erupting volcano, but be sure to be there at least 10 minutes before the time.

    This was the last of the hotels in the complex to be built. It was designed by a lady from the USA and all the statues and fountains were done by world renowned SA artist Danie de Jager. Just visiting this place is breath taking.

    If you want to go on a safari, but don't really want to rough it, I would then suggest, you book at Sun City. You can have a safari at Pilanisberg , where you will be able to see the big five, and have the luxury to go back to your hotel, where you will be pampered, play golf, and catch a show the evening.

    Adjoining the Resort, is the beautiful Pilanesberg National Park, which will delight game viewers as it is a malaria free zone and home to the Big 5.

    Shabeen

    There is a shabeen in the cultural village at Sun City. It`s really nice as the food is nice and atmosphere is nice. This is just like a shabeen in the townships as you can buy your beers and the food is what you`ll find in a shabeen like pap and gravy with steak and they also got stuff like steak and chips ,burgers and things like that. There is a Dj there that plays music so you welcome to dance and enjoy yourself.

    I never would even imagine a place like this at Sun City but I have to say I enjoyed visiting there.

    Bakubung

    I booked to go for a game drive here at Bakubung which I totally enjoyed. It was a 3 hour drive in which we saw alot Elephant , Rhino , Lion and various antelope. We also had the option of have a bush braai there after the game drive but we didn`t do it as it was too cold. The game drive started at 3pm and finished at 6pm , they offered us blankets and juice and water when on the game drive.

    At the Bakubung lodge there is a nice restaurant there if you want to have dinner or lunch there before or after the game drive.

    I booked the Bakubung game drive when I stayed at Authentic French Guest House which was about half the price Sun City was charging for the same game drive.

    Fish Frenzy At Waterworld

    Fish Scrambling For Bread
    2 more images

    Take a walk down to waterworld where the jetties and boats are located and you will see these large fish lazing around in the lake. The highlight is when the cafe manager puts on a show for his patrons. He throws some bread scraps into the lake and turmoil breaks loose as the fish go on a rampage.

    Worth the price of a coffee, or you can bring your own bread.

    Wave Pool, Valley Of Waves Worth The Visit.

    Waves On Their Way
    4 more images

    We were in Sun City late May and just in time to see the Wave Pool in operation as the next day it was to close down for winter. It is an amazing place and much larger than I imagined, a small ocean and beach in the middle of Africa, many hundreds of miles from the Ocean. The waves come up regularly, with sound, and it is like being at the beach.

    With a background of the Palace on one side and lush forest and vegetation on other sides it really is something to see. Within the grounds and close to the pool are the Amphitheatre, Royal Bath,Observation Bar etc.

    Just what every parent wants, somewhere for the kids to play and be supervised whilst you have a few hours for yourself. The supervised activity programme for all children aged 2 to 12 years is something most children appreciate.
