North West Province Travel Guide

Map of North West Province

The North West Province is set in the western Magaliesberg with plenty to do and see in this region.


From fun and excitement in the centre of a volcanic valley surrounded by the slopes of the Pilanesberg mountains! A wilderness wonderland rises from the dust. A playground for adults designed to entertain. The fantastic Sun City Resort Complex could be mistaken for a mirage.


To bushveld, savannah and farmland with Madikwe and Pilanesberg (malaria-free reserves) spread across the plains of South Africa's North-West Province. The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is the third largest in South Africa and its vast, open plains have often been compared to the parks and reserves of East Africa, while Madikwe Game Reserve offers a Big 5 South Africa Safari holiday for the whole family.


This area is famed for its bird watching, hunting, fishing, sport, and Anglo-Boer war sites only 3 hours' drive from Johannesburg, the attractions of  the North West Province will spoil you for choice. Off the beaten track and not a main stream tourist destination, this fantastic area will surprise you with all it has to offer.
