Mother Nature’s playground

Close to Gauteng, the North West Province offers visitors some of the finest wildlife destinations in South Africa. Both the Pilanesberg National Park and the Madikwe Game Reserve provide excellent safari experiences with abundant bird and wildlife.

Other attractions include hiking, fishing or just relaxing in the selection of fine guest estates. Due to the close proximity of Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, the Magaliesberg is the perfect first night stopover en route to Sun City or Madikwe Game Reserve. The grand Sun City entertainment mecca offers unparalleled entertainment. With a huge variety of gambling and entertainment opportunities, two world-famous Gary Player designed golf courses, horse and elephant back safaris, the waterpark and Valley of the Waves – there’s something for everyone. In the adjacent Pilanesberg Game Reserve there are a variety of luxury lodges and comfortable Parks Board accommodation to choose from.
