North West Province
Northwest is dubbed the ‘Platinum Province for its immense mineral wealth, and mining makes up over 20% of its economy. In tourism terms, the province is best known for Sun City, an opulent Las Vegas-style resort that combines a casino, golf courses, a water park, children’s activities and luxury hotels. It is within easy reach of two of Northwest’s other key attractions – Madikwe Game Reserve and Pilanesberg National Park. Both of these superb wildlife reserves offer visitors a chance of seeing the famed ‘Big Five’ – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard.
