Gauteng DestinationsHammanskraal, Northern Gauteng

Roughly 30 minutes from Pretoria, virtually on the border with the North West Province, the little town of Hammanskraal lies just off the N1 - the R101 runs directly through it. It’s not a particularly pretty town by any one’s standards. Its neglect is a direct result of its being one of the previously disadvantaged areas that suffered most under the marginalisation of apartheid.

This shouldn’t deter a visit to Hammanskraal, however, as there are a number of opportunities to stay in accommodation within the townships in Hammanskraal and to experience the warmth and hospitality for which South Africa’s country regions are so famous. Visitors pass through the little town to visit the number of game lodges, farms and small holdings in the area that provide ample opportunity for Gautengers to experience African bushveld, literally minutes from the city.

An added attraction is the Carousel Casino just off the N1 closer to Bela Bela, a little further north of Hammanskraal, that brings a further type of visitor out this way.

To the east of Hammanskraal is the region of Dinokeng, a relatively new tourist region that means “a place of rivers” and refers to the two major rivers, the Olifants and the Limpopo, that run through here. That this is a beautiful part of the country is uncontested. The real draw card is the incredible scenery and the access to a number of game reserves and conservancies, all restocked with game with the potential to form a large Big Five game reserve in future.
