NORTH WEST PROVINCE HOLIDAYS

The North West, like the Free State, is a ‘Big Sky’ province consisting of classic bushveld terrain stretching from Gauteng to the Botswana border.

Madikwe game reserve is the North West’s best kept secret, only 4 hours drive from Johannesburg on the Botswana border, and it is a great choice for visitors wanting a different ‘Big 5’ malaria-free game viewing experience. Home to the wild dog, black rhino, cheetah and brilliant wildlife, with many accommodation types to suit all needs, ranging from farm houses to luxury game lodges.

The North West also boasts the famous resort of Sun City. Only two hours drive from Gauteng, it offers a variety of accommodation options, including The Palace of The Lost City, which is a luxury five star hotel. With lots to offer to suit all ages, including the Gary Player and Lost City 18-hole championship golf courses. Casinos, entertainment and man-made attractions are the thing here. Within easy reach of the Pilanesberg National Park, home to the ‘Big 5’ and in a great location for visitors from Johannesburg and Pretoria with little time or those who are after a ‘soft game experience’.

Mafikeng is the capital of the province and is worth a visit if you have an interest in the Anglo-Boer War as this is where the seven-month siege of British forces took place. The modern city is famous for its impressive administration buildings, which are decorated with contemporary designs. A great option for a visitor with time to spend exploring the country.

Endless fields of maize, the fertile plains and small villages with peaceful homesteads dot the landscape. Relaxing activities such as bird watching, hiking and horse riding can be enjoyed in the countryside of the North West. The Vaal River is alive with holidaymakers, who spend the days swimming, water skiing or just relaxing. The De Wildt Cheetah Farm is a must for visitors to the province - renowned for the breeding of cheetah, including the rare king cheetah, along with the African wild dog and brown hyena.

Magaliesberg mountain range separates the North West Province and Gauteng, with a host of arts and craft venues, great restaurants, guesthouses and adventures. Hartbeespoort Dam is another attraction especially for the lovers of water sports and golf. The province is a gateway region to the neighbouring Botswana.
