The Valley of Waves is the central feature of the Lost City at Sun City. It is one of the most advanced water parks in the world, dominated by the Roaring Lagoon. When waves are not generated, a bobbing cycle is generated in a diamond pattern. All Resort residents enter the park free of charge by presenting their resident cards. Day visitors pay an entrance fee to the park.

It's a fake beach with fake waves, but you've got to love it – the waves are generated with a lovely 'boom' from the back of the pool. The water is that kind of blue you only see in movies. There's shade and back rests,...More

We didn't stay at the resort just drove in for the day- The pools are well looked after and the place is clean. We went on a colder day so the slides were not fully open which was a bit disappointing. During the cooler months...More

Good fun for the children and adults alike. Young children are also catered for there. Fun ride on tubes down a waterway. Safe area for small children to play in the water and also slides and a beachy area.

It's a wonderful place to chill and kick back. You can swim, enjoy the sun next to the pool, enjoy music from the local DJ, take a walk or enjoy the water slide.

We stayed in the hotel, so our entrance was free. But all entry fees are available for viewing on Sun International's website. You can take your own towels.
