Rich wildlife, untamed natural beauty and sunflowers swaying in the wind. – these are only some of the attractions that draw visitors to the Eastern region of the North West. Travel a short distance from the bustling cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg in Gauteng to another world, a place where nature, wildlife and adventure reign. Choose from a range of activities, such as water sport, mountaineering, hang-gliding, parasailing, abseiling, hiking, angling, yachting, ballooning and travelling on the cableway. The culture and history of the region is also refreshingly different. This part of the province is also blessed with mineral riches that support some of the world’s largest mines.
