Rustenburg, famous for its platinum mining since the discovery of the Platinum Reef by Hans Merensky in 1929, has more to offer visitors than you may expect. Hotels in Rustenburg form part of this offering.
Being conveniently located close to not one but two major cities, as well as situated on major highway routes, Rustenburg is an incredibly easily accessible holiday and business destination. The rich history of the city can either be your entire reason to visit – and will keep you occupied – or can serve as a welcome exploration as a break from a busy day of meetings. The city has a number of historic churches, including the Anglican Church, built in 1871, and the Dutch Reformed Church, built between 1898–1903 for visitors to take in, as well as the fundamental historical attractions of the famous statue of the Voortrekker girl and the Rustenburg Museum itself.
Visitors wanting to connect with nature and experience wildlife in its natural environment also have a number of opportunities open to them in the form of all the game reserves Rustenburg boasts. The Kgaswane Game Reserve is the perfect choice for any visitor wanting to get a little active, as this mountain-based game reserve can be accessed by hikers or 4x4s. Meanwhile the Madikwe Game Reserve and Groot Marico Park together constitute half the size of Belgium and Madikwe is home to the Big Five, as well as the second largest population of elephants in South Africa – making it a must-see South African attraction.
With all Rustenburg has on offer, we know that you could be visiting the bustling town for any number of reasons, from a business trip, to a place to stay while on a game reserve tour. That’s why we offer an incredibly conveniently placed “base camp” in the form of our Road Lodge Rustenburg, to allow you to take full advantage of this rich area.
