Last Sunday I visited the Sun City resort http://www.suninternational.com/Destinations/Resorts/SunCity/Pages/default.aspx
which is only a few kilometers off my usual Sunday morning route. Every Sunday they invite bikers into the complex free of charge & offer breakfast. That's every Sunday except this upcoming one because of the annual golf tournament http://www.nedbankgolfchallenge.com/leaderboard.asp , one of the biggest sporting events in the country.

I had breakfast in the Palms Terrace Restaurant






The breakfast cost the equivalent of about US$ 10.

I then had a stroll round. This the lake where they offer jet skis, water skiing & parasailing


There were some birds of prey on display. This is a kestrel I think


and this is a lanner falcon

There was a great deal of activity going on- erecting massive air-conditioned marquees & sprucing up the gardens for the golf tournament. The Cascades Hotel is in the background


The whole complex was looking immaculate


The tournament tees off tomorrow (Thursday). This is the 18th green of the Gary Player golfcourse

.

The entrance to the Cascades Hotel


A view from the hotel's terrace


The entrance to the Entertainment Centre. This houses the Superdome where I've seen live shows by Rod Stewart, Elton John, Queen & Bryan Adams over the years

The walkway to the Lost City


I guess the theme is that it's supposed to be a mythical place from ancient times- hence the 'distressed' wooden gates :)
