Weather and Climate
Sun City’s temperate, malaria-free climate makes it a great year-round destination. Peak season at Sun City coincides with South Africa’s summer and Easter national school vacations, which run from December to January and around April, respectively. Expect hot weather, greater guest numbers and less room availability over these periods. The late autumn and winter months – from about May to September - are cooler and quieter but check before you book when the Valley of Waves is scheduled to close down for a month for annual maintenance.
