North West – Central

North West - Central Region

General Information

The North West Province lies, as its name implies, in the north west of South Africa. The province is bounded by Botswana to the north and northwest, by the Limpopo Province to the northeast, by the Gauteng Province to the east, by the Free State Province to the southeast and by the Northern Cape to the southwest.  Its capital city is Mahikeng.

The area occupies the relatively flat interior plateau of southern Africa.  Savanna and thornveld biomes predominate this region.  The Magaliesberg mountains are located in the northeast of the region and the crater of a long extinct volcano in the north make for interesting geological formations.

Climate

Expect balmy and hot conditions when you visit this region in summer, with morning temperatures around 17 degrees and a mid-day heat over 30 degrees.  Winder days are icy in the morning, with temperatures dropping down to 3 degrees, but rising during the day to a very pleasant 21 degrees.

Rainfall in the area totals about 360mm per annum with almost all if it falling during the summer months between October and April.

Economy

Maize and groundnuts are grown throughout the province.  Sunflowers are also grown extensively throughout the central region and their colour will bring joy to any traveller.  Tobacco, wheat and citrus fruit are also grown in the northeast.

Mining is also plays an important economic role in this province.  Diamonds, chromite, platinum and uranium are mined here.  The southern region of the province around the town of Klerksdorp falls within the goldfields region.

Attractions

When visiting the North West you will be not disappointed.  The region is blessed with untamed bushveld and numerous National Parks and Game Reserves.  Visitors who enjoy spending time outdoors can look forward to viewing the Big Five, numerous hiking trails, fishing and water sports.  The magnificent vistas in this region will enchant any visitor.

Those looking for some alternative entertainment should make a point of visiting Sun City for some gambling, shows, great kids entertainment and various culinary indulgences.  Alternatively, make a point of visiting any of the magnificent golf courses in the region or take the time to explore the history of the region with some visits to cultural heritage sites and museum visits.

Map area

The map of the North West province has been divided into three sections for ease of reference.  In the middle of the province is the central region which extends from the N4 freeway in the north to the N14 in the south.  The border with Botswana and the main order posts into southern Africa are located to the west, while the Gauteng Province borders to the east.
