From untamed bushveld to the sophistication of 5-star resorts, the North West Province provides the complete tourism package. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the province offers an escape route to the real Africa. Nature has blessed this province with breathtaking scenic beauty, rolling fieldsof maize, golden sunflowers and vast plains of African bushveld.

The ideal backdrop for the enjoyment of our outdoor attractions: superb game parks home to the Big Five, magnificent golf courses, water features and sporting facilities.

Home to the fantastic Pilanesberg and Madikwe game reserves, the Bokone Bophirima Province offers up the big 5, fantastic bird-life and wideopen African skies. The area boasts archaeological discoveries that go back to the beginnings of humankind, as well as the world-famous Sun City hotel complex, creatively dedicated to ancient lost civilizations and modern-day pleasures. The province extends all the way from Gauteng, Northern Cape< Limpopo Provinces to the Botswana border.

The area is flanked by the Magaliesberg and the Kalahari Desert and has a population of just over four million people. Summer brings hot, sunny days (temperatures in the region of around 22 to 34 ºC); winters are relatively warm during daylight hours, however, the evenings can get somewhat chilly (temperaturerange from 15 to 22 ºC). Small wonder then that so many choose to stay in this place of sun-baked, often intemperate climate. The Province of the North West is a must see destination – one that is diverse and exciting.

Visitors seeking to experience the wilderness and cultural treasures of the North West may do so conveniently because of its proximity to the Johannesburg International Airport and the major centres of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

While visiting the North West, the traditional warmth of the province will be shared with you, as well as pride in the history and culture of the province, and visitors can take home with them lasting memories of a special experience. There’s no reason not to make your next holiday.
