The North West is filled with vast grasslands and endless views stretching from one horizon to the other. It has two of the country's largest Big 5 game reserves, the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve which is on the Botswana border, and Pilanesberg National Park near Sun City.
The North West includes two heritage sites and Mafikeng is its capital (famous for the Siege of Mafikeng during the Anglo-Boer War and the founding of the Boy Scout movement).
Popular areas are the Magaliesberg, Haartebeespoort and Pilansberg where you can paraglide, windsurf, and water-ski - for the adventurous, one can cave dive at Wondergat which has an extensive underwater cave network.
Sun City, the world’s largest playground, is less than two hours from Johannesburg, where you can enjoy the Valley of the Waves, outstanding golf courses, enormous casino, entertainment centre, spa and game viewing in the Pilanesberg National Park
