High tea in the spectacular crystal room is an experience not to be missed if you're staying anywhere in Sun City. A pre-booking gives entrée to the well-guarded Palace and its grounds as well as free valet parking as a bonus. The extremely reasonable price of R155.00 buys you a good selection of pastries and cakes as well as the pleasure of listening to an extremely talented pianist on the enormous Weisenbacher grand apparently inaugurated by Liberace himself some years ago. Kudos to JP who entertained us so beautifully on our visit. Grab the carrot cake first though as that appears to be a favourite amongst the staff who rather strangely helped themselves to the last two pieces long before the end of tea time!
Apart from the tea it is worth paying that amount for the sheer pleasure of enjoying visionary, Sol Kerzners, ultimate dream palace, which, in both my and my husband's opinion, far outstrips any of the Vegas complexes for magnificence and faithfulness to a theme (African grandeur).
