North West

North West lies in the north of South Africa on the Botswana border, fringed by the Kalahari desert in the west, Gauteng province to the east, and the Free State to the south.

It is known as the Platinum Province for the wealth of the minerals it has underground.

North West has a number of major tourist attractions, including the Pilanesberg National Park, the Madikwe Game Reserve and Sun City.

Sun City is one of the world's biggest entertainment centres, with a casino, an 18-hole golf course, theatres and concert halls, beaches and a wave pool at the Valley of the Waves, a meticulously reconstructed tropical rainforest, and a number of world class hotels which include the remarkable Palace of the Lost City.

Haartebeespoort Dam is well worth a visit – just an hour and a half’s drive out of the city of Johannesburg or Pretoria.    Here you can enjoy exploring the Magalies Meander which is an art and craft route offering painted ceramics, oils and beautiful locally crafted items.  Enjoy the many pubs and restaurants lining the enormous dam where you will also find an aquarium zoo and snake park.
