Sun City, the extravagant South-African palace

In the middle of the South-African bush, The Palace at Sun City is the ultra kitsch and exotic flagship of an extravagant venue of leisure.

Sun City, the extravagant South-African palace

Summary

A fairytale mix between Disneyland and the Thousand and One Nights, two hours from Johannesburg, this incredible resort, created in the 70s by millionaire Sol Kerzner, is much more than an exotic palace at the end of the world. It's a holiday destination where extravaganza is the norm. Dedicated to leisure and games, it recalls the legend of the « Lost City » dear to Tarzan.

Luxury is at the rendezvous of Sun City, in South Africa

Comprising 338 rooms, its unusual architectural style features turquoise domes, a 25-meter-high interior cupola, majestic colonnades, animal frescoes, mosaics, bronze statues of animals, XXL crystal chandeliers and zebra armchairs.
