Hot air ballooning: Fly in hot air balloons within this unique location with all its scenic beauty and wildlife, only 35 minutes' drive from the lodge.

Valley of Waves at Sun City: Fun, fun, fun for the whole family! The Valley of Waves at Sun City is the most advanced Water Park in South Africa and provides hours of entertainment beneath the warm South African sun. The Roaring Lagoon is the centre of the park - and a regular 1.2 metre wave is generated and crashes on the white sandy beach. Surrounding the lagoon a meandering river allows for a wonderful scenic tube-ride and, for adrenaline seekers there are five exhilarating water-rides to choose from including the Temple of Courage.

Golf: Sun City can lay claim to having two of the best golf courses in Africa. Both courses were designed by well-known Gary Player and offer challenging courses in extremely scenic surroundings. The Lost City Golf Course is a unique experience and offers spectacular views across the bushveld. Also to be noted is the use of bunkers and extensive water features - and at the 13th hole 38 crocodiles await. The par 72 course at the Gary Player Country Club is home to the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge and the tree lined course is a challenge to both novices and professionals. The pro-shop, putting green and health spa are open 7-days a week.

Quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and archery: only 35km from the lodge in the Sun City complex, go and search for adventure and wildlife on a four-wheeler, encountering natural obstacles on the trail. Or blast away at clays with a 12-gauge shotgun! Or try your hand at the ancient sport of archery with modern day equipment.
