South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland - North West Province (PDF Chapter)
This is the North West Province chapter from Lonely Planet’s South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland guidebook.
This stretch of bushveld is famous for Sun City, the southern hemisphere’s answer to Las Vegas. But it’s the nearby parks and reserves that we really love – Madikwe Game Reserve is a gem, while Pilanesberg has terrific wildlife and is very accessible.
- stop within metres of a pride of lions resting under a thorn tree, on a safari in Madikwe Game Reserve in which the Big Five are never far away
- get down to basics without sacrificing on comfort in Madikwe Game Reserve, a reserve where the accommodation really stands out
- drive the back roads of Pilanesberg National Park in search of big wildlife you can keep all to yourself while the crowds head elsewhere
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Rustenburg, Sun City, Pilanesberg National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve, Magaliesberg Range.
