Enjoy a luxurious setting with a golf course, casino and spa.

Choose the well-situated Sun City Cabanas Hotel right on the famous Waterworld Lake at this extraordinary South African resort in Northwest Province next to Pilanesberg National Park. The Cabanas Hotel is a more lowkey choice of accommodation at Sun City, ideal for families with small kids, complete with kiddies’ swimming pool next to the vast swimming pool, two terrace restaurants serving wonderful snacks and plenty of grass on which to play and run. 

This is a great base for visitors to Sun City to explore the entire mecca of the golf course casino estate resort. Try everything there is to try while your kids attend the Kiddies’ Club – the casino, vibrant nightlife, a great movie and book your trip to coincide with a live music show. Sip cool cocktails on the Cabanas Pool Deck before you set off razzling in the greater entertainment sections.

Sun City is a luxury resort and casino, bordering the Pilanesberg National Park, 140 km from Johannesburg and Cabanas Hotel is one of 4 extraordinary hotels comprising hundreds of rooms and suites in total. This wild resort and golf course escape was the brainchild of Sol Kerzner, who imagined something unique for all visitors to South Africa who could enjoy his man-made forests, castles, waterfalls and rivers in one huge estate. The hotels are all large and charismatic but the Cabanas is smaller and simpler and we love that it boasts lake views and immediate access to Waterworld.

Choose a lavish three-star room or suite from the total of 24 standard lake-facing rooms, 120 standard twin rooms, 32 family lake-facing rooms, 201 family standard rooms and 3 wheelchair-accessible rooms.

The Sun City Hotel is five minutes away and here you can gamble at the casino or take the shuttle to the Valley of the Waves. Palm Terrace is a great breakfast spot and Cabanas Pool Deck is ideal for snacks and drinks.



Welcome to one of the best family hotels in South Africa with plenty to do for everyone. Sun City Cabanas Hotel offers your family something clean and modern, a wonderful base from which to explore the rest of the resort and gardens. Start your holiday on the pool deck with an exotic cocktail and watch the sun go down, then start your adventure in a thrilling entertainment mecca where nature is also alongside everything you do. 

Grab a delicious meal at the Terrace or head on up to the main Sun City Hotel for something more refined. Catch a movie, take a bet at the casino, or watch a famous musician live on stage. The kids can run amok with the rest of their newfound friends while you get a game of golf, play a set of tennis or wine and dine all day. 

Sun City is a legendary set of hotels tucked in the hills next to Pilanesberg National Park in Northwest Province of South Africa, easily accessible from Johannesburg and a great blend of entertainment and outdoor activities. Choose the Cabanas Hotel for all your family needs, a central accommodation choice close to Waterworld and the main food court and casino. It offers a choice of restaurants and swimming pools, walks, and great attention to detail.

Make sure you walk to the Palace of the Lost City just to experience the magnificent ecosystems created to stun and amaze all guests, the huge botanic gardens jungle and the fascinating décor and sculptures.  Your accommodation at the Cabanas is unique in that it is three-star and comes with sleeper couches for families with kids, showers, balconies and TVs. Enjoy air conditioning too and tea and coffee. 

Rooms are intimate and towels and bedding are refreshed regularly. If you are looking for a festive atmosphere and want to keep your kids occupied, then Cabanas is a great option. It’s close to lots of activities such as water sports, trampolines, a jungle gym area, a grassy area to play ball games, putt-putt, Segways, trams, and a motor track for kids.

Cabanas is rated as the best holiday atmosphere compared to the other Sun City hotels with a DJ at the bar and some competitions. Kids can play with inflatable toys in the main pool and a shuttle departs every twenty minutes but it takes about 5-10 minutes to walk to the food courts.
