The last night of trip to Botswana we decided to spend it in the resort Sun city, located in Pilanesburg National Park, 170 kilometers from Johannesburg. This set of hotels is inspired by the leisure complexes that we can find in Orlando and in addition to four hotels, it includes a casino, a water park, a shopping and entertainment area, a golf course and a congress area.
During our stay we stayed at the Cascades, a 5 star hotel with an elegant style from the eighties. It is the average price hotel in Sun City and has 243 rooms overlooking the pool and a jungle garden with waterfalls. The hotel rises right in front of the shopping area, is a short walk from the water park and also has tennis courts and an aviary nearby. The rooms themselves are very comfortable, spacious, luxury full bathroom, TV, etc. Anyway, everything you expect from a 5 star hotel.
When we got to the room we had a curious anecdote: There was a continuous knock on the glass door that overlooked the balcony. When I went out to see what that noise produced, I was stunned: a colorful bird was pecking at its reflection in the mirrored glass. I chased him away so that he would devote himself to something more useful, but after a while he came back and continued to prick his reflection. I felt sorry, poor bird, but it made it clear that this elegant hotel is in a very natural environment. Just like the nest with three little eggs that we saw on a window sill, in a hotel corridor,
It should also be noted that in this hotel eats very well. They have a very good restaurant with all kinds of high quality dishes and breakfast has an offer that you do not finish.
Returning to the SunCity Resort, we discovered that many South Africans will spend the day at water park Valley of waves, which is very fun and for the whole family. It is set as if they were the remains of an ancient civilization, with a spectacular entrance full of animal statues, as if you had entered another world. There are many lawn areas where you can put your towel and lie down, and there are also changing rooms with showers. If you are a hotel guest, towel rental is free, of course. In the center there is a large wave pool surrounded by sand, with volleyball area and stage with various animations. Then there is a channel that you can travel sitting on an inflatable tire and, beyond, five different water slides for all ages, including one that gives a lot of vertigo, all of them on the side of a hill. It is a place to have a good day soaking, eat a pizza and keep soaking in the afternoon.
