Sun City is safer than the safest place in Perth - it's closed off & is probably the safest in SA as well....
duno bout being safer than the safest place in Perth but I understand what you are saying - thanks for your info!
lmao Vannie Kaap, that's right, at Sun City they have these Machines that come up to you and make you put your hand in your pocket, and fork out some cash.....
Sun City is completely enclosed entertainment centre/resort. It has four hotels ranging from the cheapest and most familiar oriented, the Cabanas (3 star), Sun City Hotel (3.5 star), Cascades Hotel (4 star) and the Palace of the Lost City (5 star).
You can walk around even at night from one area to another or take one of the regular shuttle buses which drive up and down the road from one hotel to another.
Plenty of activities whether you want watersports, pubs (not enough of those - only one real one), plenty of swimming pools, if you have kids, plenty for them to do during the day but limited at night. There is also the Pilanesberg National Park adjacent - much smaller than Kruger but still an enjoyable experience, especially if you take a proper game drive with the experts.
I am I South African and we go to Sun City twice a year.
For us it is MOST definatly a VERY VERY safe place to be.
It is about 2 hours drive from Johannesburg and the resort has strict security.
If you stay at the Palace of the Lost city the security is even more tight and only residents of the Palace may use the pool area.
Also forgot to say there are two golf courses - Gary Player and the Lost City.
The most dangerous species in Sun City are the annoying baboons.... but there are strict rules about not approaching them etc. We are after all in their domain, but the problem has been that people have been feeding them and where at one time they stayed within the confines of the bush, they do walk around the complex early in the morning and late afternoon.
Yup, forgot to add the baboons as well...and the Monkeys! We were staying at the Palace on the 2nd floor & when we came out the bathroom one of these naughty little guys was going through my now x wife's handbag..... He came in as we left the sliding door to the balcony open.
