Mogwase, Bojanala Region

People often speak about Mogwase as near Sun City. It is the easiest popular landmark from which to get your bearings.

However, it is actually closer to the truth to say that Mogwase lies near the Pilanesberg National Park. To make it even more confusing, there is another town called Mogwasi that does lie close to Sun City. Certainly closer than Mogwase, which is further north, just east of the Pilanesberg.

Mogwase is a fast developing town because of the rapid growth of the platinum industry in the North West, but aside from this, and the already mentioned fact that it lies close to two of the major tourist attractions in the North West province, it has little to recommend it. It lies in what is known as the Moses Kotane local municipality that is almost completely rural. There are around 109 little villages whilst the only towns in the locality are Mogwase and Madikwe, and they're both small.

The Pilanesberg National Park features all of the Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, and also lies at the foot of the mountains and borders the Sun City entertainment complex. The beauty of the park is that it lies in the giant crater of a long extinct volcano that is one of the largest volcanic complexes in the world.

The hospitality in this small town is worth raving about. They truly are the friendliest SeTswana people you can find. Make sure to make local friends and have a great experience with the humble natives.
