Palace of the Lost City

A member of Leading Hotels of the World, Palace of the Lost City is a South African hotel with plenty to offer. Set in beautiful gardens and located on the edge of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve in the country’s North West Province, the resort is ideally placed for safari game drives and visiting historic sites. With so much to do just outside your door, the activity options are endless.

Palace of the Lost City is the flagship hotel of the wider Sun City Resort, within whose vast grounds you’ll find two world-class golf courses, a ‘Superbowl’ showing diverse entertainments, several tempting eateries and, most impressive of all, Valley of Waves. The latter is a vast waterpark, featuring slides, rides and even a manmade beach complete with wave pool. Consequently, this is the only resort less than two hours’ drive from land-locked Johannesburg where guests can enjoy ‘beachside’ fun. Chill out here, enjoy a ride on the lazy river or take the plunge down the slide at the Temple of Courage.

Of course, whilst here you’ll want to venture out to the nearby reserve for a game drive to see iconic South African wildlife, something your Travel Specialist can pre-book ahead of your trip. We also recommend taking a sunrise balloon ride over the plains of Pilanesberg National Park.
