SOUTH AFRICA: Visit North West Province Of South Africa
It is its warm African climate with moderate winters which is truly unique. Small wonder, then, that so many indulge in the many water recreation facilities available throughout the province.
Even less surprising that so many choose to stay in this place of uncompromisingly tempered, often intemperate climate. Read through main places of the North West Province.
Bojanala East is situated close to Gauteng, and is the most scenic region of the province
Bojanala-Rustenburg region is covered in natural bushveld vegetation. With the added attraction of the Magaliesberg, this region has much to offer to the eco-tourist. It is a natural game area with a number of world renown and fine game parks.
There is a large variety of historical and cultural interests to be found in the area, such as the German community of Kroondal that dates back to 1857, the indigenous Bafokeng, Bakgatla and Botswana tribes with their totemic and other tribal traditions.
Western region of the North West Province
“Getting closer to nature” is the main focus of the Dr Ruth S. Mompati District (formerly Bophirima Region or Stellaland).
The principal town, Vryburg, is the centre of a large agricultural district which has all the modern conveniences. However moving out of the town and into the real Bophirima will provide a uniquely relaxing break from modern life. Among its key attractions is the UNESCO declared World Heritage Site, the Taung Skull Heritage Site.
The Ngaka Modiri Molema District (Central Region) is home to Mahikeng, the capital of the province. Aptly named, the slogan of the capital is ‘The City of Goodwill’. It is a rapidly growing, modern, residential, administrative and commercial town, that contrasts with its fascinating history.
Dr Kenneth Kaunda District… an infinitive tapestry of green maize and yellow sunflower fields, alternated with bushveld plains, dotted with wild olive and umbrella thorn trees.
An outdoor adventurer’s paradise, offering hiking trails, mountain biking trails, canoeing, white water rafting, mountain climbing, abseiling. Also a home and host of world sport events, and capital for medical tourism.
