Things to do in North West

One of the county’s least known or understood regions given that Sun City and the Big Five Pilanesberg National Park get most of the attention from incoming tourists. However those who do step outside their comfort zone and explore ‘the other stuff’ will be well rewarded. There are many welcoming little dorpies scattered on sea of grassland that will provide a welcome change to the hectic style of Jo’burg and Pretoria.


Get on the N4 from Pretoria and you will cut through the mountains to the main town of the northeastern part of the province, Rustenburg, gateway to the windswept Kgaswane Mountain Reserve, where you can hike high enough to gaze down onto the shimmering plains beneath. Groot Marico, further west along the N4, is a friendly place with powerful home-brews and laidback people to share them with. Further to the west lies the provincial capital of Mafikeng – famed for its siege during the second Anglo-Boer War.
