North West Province Luxury Holidays


Travel to the remote North West region of South Africa for a wildlife encounter and luxury safari vacation beyond compare. Fringed by the Kalahari Desert, the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains and the Vaal River, this sparsely populated region invites you to come and explore its secret charms.

Try your luck at one of Africa’s best family-friendly destinations, Sun City, an upscale entertainment complex, with casino, that offers luxury accommodation in its stylish hotels and resorts. Relax with a round of golf on the 18-hole courses, some of the best in Africa set out in beautiful surroundings or be entertained in the numerous theatres and concert halls. Children and adults alike will love the Valley of the Waves with its reconstructed sea and sand experience. A great base from which to explore the wildlife attractions on its doorstep, Sun City also offers you fabulous in-house activities and entertainments.

Free roaming elephant, black and white rhino, lions, giraffes and lots of different antelope move through the bush against a backdrop of enormous volcanic intrusions known as Inselbergs in the Madikwe Game Reserve. When you choose to stay at Madikwe, easily accessible from Johannesburg, you are entering modern history; this collaborative game reserve is home to Operation Phoenix, the largest game relocation project in the world. You need to stay here at one of the exclusive family-friendly safari lodges in order to access the abundance of wildlife on the reserve. Madikwe Game Reserve has secured the continued existence of many endangered species including the leopard, wild dog, rhino and buffalo. Choose from any of the luxury game lodges in this malaria-free destination to secure an exceptional African wildlife experience.

View both the wildlife and stunning landscapes from a slowly drifting hot air balloon or by a guided game drive or bush walk in the Magaliesberg area, a favoured destination for those seeking adventure in the outdoors.

Whether you are coming for the game or a gaming experience at Sun City, the North West province offers you malaria-free safaris, abundant wildlife and a luxury stay, contact Southern Africa Travel today to find out more.

The North West region is best known for:

Madikwe Game Reserve
Enjoy a superlative safari experience and wildlife encounter at Madikwe; this is the fourth largest game reserve in the country and one of South Africa’s prime safari destinations. You are guaranteed a luxury African vacation at any one of the beautiful game lodges within the reserve.

The Taung National Heritage Site
The discovery of a fossilised skull of a child at this site in 1924 advanced evidence of the existence of early man in Africa by more than a million years. This ancient valley is a great place for hikers with its caves, streams and attractive rock pools.

Pilanesberg National Park
Head into the crater of a long extinct volcano, one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world, found at the Pilanesberg National Park. The Park boasts rare rock types and structures as well as many species of wild game including the Big Five. There are also numerous Stone and Iron Age sites in the region.

Off the beaten track:

Lift off over the Pilanesberg
Take off on a hot air balloon safari in the Pilanesberg area, one of the few places in South Africa where you can combine this luxurious form of travel with a landing on a private game reserve, a game drive and delicious breakfast before returning to our lodge or hotel.

Interact with the elephants
Get close to these gentle giants by taking an elephant-back safari through the foothills of the Pilanesberg Mountains. Learn their secrets on this trip where you can touch, ride, feed and photograph them. This safari takes you along ancient game trails on the backs of these majestic creatures.

Experience an African showcase of talent
Immerse yourself in the sounds and sights of Africa at Sun City’s Village People Cultural Experience. Drawing from the cultural influences of the different groups in Southern Africa, this show is an extravaganza of colour and sound. Feel free to sample the traditional foods and relax to the rhythms of Africa.
