BHO was contracted by Sun International to build a new development called the Lefika Villas (Lefika) in the picturesque hills surrounding the existing Vacation Club complex at Sun City. The name Lefika Villas was selected as it means ‘stone' in the local Setswana language. The name pays homage to the adjacent stone-walled Itlholanoga heritage site – the real ‘lost city’ of the greater Sun City resort. The settlement is located on the northern face of the hill overlooking the entire valley and is a reminder of the proud Setswana heritage. The site is rated as a level five for historic significance and is a designated provincial heritage site. Turn to page 20
