Sun City Cascades Hotel

The 5 star Sun City Cascades Hotel is one of the favourite hotels of choice for guests who frequent Sun City. The Cascades Hotel offers unparalleled seclusion and escape from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Sun City and is a picture paradise of complete and utter beauty, elegance and an ambience of tranquillity and relaxation.

Impodimo Game Lodge

Wake up to the sweet sounds of the African bush and start off your day with a cup of coffee before you set off on an early morning game drive with a professional ranger. Impodimo Game Lodge offers 5- star luxury set against a spectacular rocky ridge at the source of a natural spring. The evaluation of the lodge means that guests can enjoy spectacular uninterrupted views over the surrounding bushveld. Apart from the early morning and evening game drives in 7- seater Landrovers, guests can enjoy guided bush walks where you can learn more about the Madikwe area up close and personal.  Impodimo Lodge was also the first lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve to use qualified Shangaan trackers as part of the team.

The lodge is owner/ manager run by Steve and Debbie who are there to make sure your stay is memorable and special. Steve is a qualified expert ranger while Debbie is a master in the kitchen and sports some impressive culinary skills. Accommodation at the lodge only caters for a select number of guests, making it a truly intimate experience. Each suite has been carefully placed between the tall Tamboti trees and still allows for an exceptional view of the surroundings. This is exclusivity and luxury at its best.

Sun City Gary Player Country Club

Regularly ranked as the best golf course in South Africa, the Gary Player Golf course sets the standard and arguably the most famous course in South Africa. The Gary Player Country Club is acknowledged as a difficult and demanding course and home to Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge since 1981.

Par: 72 | Distance: 6,535m | Year Opened: 1979 | Designer: Gary Player

Lost City Golf club

Situated just over the hill from the Gary Player Country Club and although both courses have similar characteristics, the Lost City Golf Club has a different layout. The course was carved out of an undulating rocky terrain and has a classical African feel. Even the clubhouse, which blends in perfectly, has been modelled on the Zimbabwe ruins, an ancient mystical city in the heart of Africa.
