Rustenburg is one of the oldest towns in this part of the world.

It’s a pretty little town, despite being a city, and there is an element of sluggishness to Rustenburg that makes it so attractive, lying as it does only 112 kilometres from Johannesburg and not far from the Sun City complex.

A must for budget travellers and backpackers is a stop in at the nearby Sun City and the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve - where you are likely to spot black and white rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo and giraffe and a variety of buck at both. Some have fake fur, some have no fur, some breathe, some don’t, but they’re all interesting.

If you are an avid historian there are many places within the city to visit. The Rustenburg Museum, in the Town Hall; the Anglican Church, built in 1871; and the Dutch Reformed Church.

For the foodies, Brauhaus am Damm is an experience in German culture - which includes the finest beer. The micro-brewery is set in the mountains, overlooking a dam is an absolute find! Which backpacker can think of anything better to do with an afternoon than sampling beers and eating fine German foods that compliment their flavours...

Travellers Inn Backpackers is an oasis located in central Rustenburg which it makes a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, go hot-air ballooning or paragliding over the Magaliesberg or visit the fascinating Sterkfontein Caves.
