7The Sun City Cascades Hotel offers a world of fantasy all its own, with a theme of cascading water, inside and out. The impression throughout is one of sheer, sophisticated elegance and superb service.
Tropical lagoons amid rock and waterscapes create a paradise for flamingos and swans, which provide a moving tableau for diners in the elegant Peninsula restaurant on the waters edge. The luxurious double rooms and suites have a private bathroom, air-conditioning, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, colour TV and radio, and each one has a view of the peaceful tropical gardens which sweep down towards the golf course and on to the sun-backed mountain slopes beyond.

The Marakele National Park in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, as its Tswana name suggests, has become a place of sanctuary for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa.The area now constituting Marakele was home to several iron-age settlements which are not yet open to public viewing.Previous to its foundation as a National Park, it was home to naturalist Eugene Marais. Marakele was founded as Kransberg National Park in 1994 . Marakele is home to the big 5 and most of the large mammals synonymous with the African bush, including elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard and cheetah.
This luxurious game lodge reflects Africas ancient wisdom and culture, the glorious forms and colour presenting a vibrant haven at the epicenter of modern design. Enter a sanctuary of mystery in harmony with the energy of nature and the environment, built of indigenous stone, timber, sand and soil, enhanced by murmuring waters and vast vistas liberated by glass walls. Inspired by the discovery of primeval ruins, Marataba embraces both the contemporary and the ancient in an exciting union of innovative architecture, design and technology, paying tribute to, and confirming, the concept of the African Renaissance.
