This place is the most complete tourist complex in South Africa, where there is a five-star hotel facilities, golf courses, parasailing, bar, and various other glamorous places of entertainment that can only be enjoyed by tourists top level. And its relatively close location to the large metropolitan areas of Pretoria and Johannesburg, ensured that Sun City soon became (and stayed) a popular holiday and weekend destination.

Sun City also became the site of several important Heavyweight boxing matches during the late 1970s and early 1980s. One such boxer was Gerrie Coetzee, who later (1983) became heavyweight world champion.
