A Sun City Zip Lining experience
Welcome to the Lost City
Sun City and its Lost City is a 2-hour drive from Johannesburg, in the Pilanesberg mountains. It sits in the crater of an extinct volcano.
Sun City was built in 1979 and The Lost City in 1992 and inspired by an ancient myth.
South Africa’s wildlife is detailed in the design.
Elephants and big cats
sculptures and statues are seen throughout the city.
All types from the African animal kingdom are portrayed along your walks…
…and then some…
How inviting is this...
But the reason for my visit this time...
…is to Zip Line up to speeds of 160kms /h for 2kms!
After a bit of a drive and a walk, you look back to see The Lost City in the background.
Views of the city
And here we are...
Getting strapped in
‘Lump in throat’
No pressure at all シ
And just like that, it was over in a flash!
It was nuts! I loved it.
You speed up as you go and slow down near to the landing point.
You have the option to go solo or tandem.
For this, my friend and I decided to dive in together head first, literally! Bloody hell.
