Our trips in the North West Province of South Africa

The Magaliesberg Mountains are an ideal weekend retreat or romantic getaway. Due to the proximity of Johannesburg International Airport, the Magaliesberg is also the perfect first night stopover on the way to Sun City or Madikwe Game Reserve. The great entertainment mecca of Sun City offers entertainment like no other. With a wide variety of gaming and entertainment opportunities, two Gary Player designed golf courses, horse and elephant safaris, the water park and Valley of the Waves, there is something for everyone.

In the adjacent Pilanesberg Game Reserve there is a range of luxury lodges and comfortable Parks Board accommodation. Customers can self-drive through the park or choose a guided walk, hike or hot air balloon safari. The Pilanesberg offers the chance to see the ‘Big Five’ and the prolific bird life.

Another attraction of the North West Province is the Madikwe Game Reserve. Also offering the ‘Big Five’, this game reserve is a joint venture between local communities, private lodge owners and the state, and is best known for its sizeable population of the beautiful and endangered African Wild Dog.

Close to Gauteng, the malaria-free North West Province offers visitors some of the best wildlife destinations in South Africa. Both the Pilanesberg National Park and the Madikwe Game Reserve provide excellent safari experiences with abundant birds and wildlife. Other attractions include hiking in the picturesque Magaliesberg mountains, fishing in the rivers and dams or simply relaxing in the selection of excellent guest properties.
