North West Adventures, a list of Things to do.

The magnificent rock formations and indigenous vegetation of the Magaliesberg Mountains in the North West provide hikers, mountain bikers and other outdoor adventure seekers ample opportunities to pursue a day in the wild. This mountain range extends from Pretoria to Rustenberg and form a natural barrier between the lower lying bushveld and the cooler highveld.

Set in a valley is the Hartbeespoort Dam, a haven for water enthusiasts. Enjoy sailing, waterskiing, canoeing or test your fly fishing skills in the dam.

The deep kloofs and ravines provide excellent rock climbing opportunities and after a long day of adventures, cool off in a mountain pool or under a leafy overhead canopy.

There is an adventure for every taste in the Magaliesberg!

A short drive north of Rustenberg, you enter the glitz and glamour capital of the North West, Sun City. This extravagant entertainment complex is perfect for those who enjoy getting their Boots Dirty, but prefers a great deal of pampering afterwards!

Enjoy the scenic beauty below as you glide effortlessly over the morning sun.

Sun City is located near the ancient volcanic mountain, Pilanesberg, This mountain rises from the surrounding plains and is part of the protected Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
