Sun City Camp

If there’s a reason why people really love Sun City Camp, it has to be because of its signature Martian Domes. And you don’t just get the dome, you also have your own lounge area outside. Sun City packed all its rooms with the best amenities – from a private bathroom and shower to individual air conditioning to a mini fridge! If not for the majestic view, you’ll forget you’re at a desert campsite! Sun City Camp also offers other kinds of tents for big groups and for those on a bit more of a budget – but bear in mind this is not a budget site, and the Martian Tents are in high demand!
