The Central Region of the North West Province is a virtual pleasure, with blue green maize fields stretching from horizon to horizon and tall silos reaching for the heavens.

It is rich in tribal and colonial history, while offering variety in activities and sights. Remnants of bygone days are still visible today in towns like Delareyville. Lichtenburg (Town of Light) was stampeded by thousands of runners during the diamond rush of 1927.

Today the focus has shifted towards protecting and conserving the bounty that Mother Nature has bestowed on the Central Region.

Silos and tribal history

Antelopes and flamingoes

Places like the Barberspan Bird Sanctuary has made the Central Region into a prime birding and fishing spot.

The reserve has about 2000 hectares under water and is a recognised leader in ornithological research. The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary has an extended breeding programme for antelopes and other mammals, for the stocking of reserves throughout the province.

Saltpans in the Delareyville area attracts thousands of flamingoes in summer, surely one of the most awe-inspiring attractions in the province.

The Central Region has many battle relics like Kanon Kopje, as well as tribal history such as the tribal meeting place of the Barolong people, in use since the 1850's.

In present time this region offers the visitor an exquisite menu of Africa's finest in Big 5 game viewing, hunting, Anglo-Boer War sites and a number of excellent guesthouses and guest farms.

The Mafikeng Game Reserve has a breeding programme for white rhino and conserves large populations of plains game including buffalo, gemsbok and giraffe.

Mafikeng and health and beauty

Mafikeng means "Place among Rocks" and is also the name of the North West Province's capital.

At Wondergat near Mafikeng is a vast underwater network of caves which draws cave divers in their hordes.

A casino resort with health and beauty center, golf course and creche will make sure that everyone gets a well deserved break.
