North West Province
This province is home to Sun City (time to get rid of your ZAR), that monument to kitsch – the Lost City - and the Pilanesberg National Park. So after you’ve cleaned up on the one-armed bandits take a walk on the wild side.
Based around a volcanic crater fringed by rolling hills and kopjies* the malaria-free Pilanesberg is home to the Big Five, cheetah, hippos, crocodiles and tree-topping giraffe.
The Magaliesberg Mountains and Botswana share its borders.
Stop off at Groot Marico and get yourself some mampoer*.
