The Lost City in Sun City

Sun City is a casino and a leisure park. There are a few hotels, including the Lost City Palace Hotel which looks artificial but is nonetheless impressive . The best thing in Sun City are the golf courses, Lost City and Gary Player, the latter being the host of the Million Dollar Challenge which takes place every year in December.

Much more interesting is the Pilanesberg Game Reserve located just behind Sun City in the hills of an ancient volcanic complex. It is much smaller than Kruger Park but very much worth a visit.

Even further away (3 to 4.5 hour drive) from Joburg are my favorite locations for (long) weekends away from the city: the Drakensberg Mountains and Kruger National Park.

The most popular South African touristic destinations are located along the Indian and the Atlantic Oceans, and more particularly where the 2 oceans meet, in the Cape Town area. The entire coastline, from Mozambique to Namibia is stunning!

Byiang, on this series I was using a compact digital camera except for #17 that I took with a 75-300mm Sigma lens on a dSLR. I now use a 100-400mm Canon lens.
