Thrills, spills, sunshine, wildlife, entertainment  and adrenalin. The Valley of the Waves Sun City is part of the Lost City, which is one of the major features of Sun City. It is a fabulous water park and has some of the most advanced technology, features and attractions in the world. It is one of the main draw-cards to Sun City, which has welcomed tens of thousands of national and international visitors.

The Valley of the Waves is perfect for couples on honeymoon, friends on a road trip, family vacations and corporate getaways, since it combines fun and picturesque views guaranteed to immerse the visitors in a world of African adventure.

The Valley of the Waves has, as its central attraction, the Roaring Lagoon – a 6 500 square metre wave pool that has automatically generated waves that reach 1.8 metres every 1.5 minutes. Swimmers can enjoy all of the “fun in the sun” of a beach holiday in the heart of North West Province. This is a luxurious beach holiday with a twist.
