Local Attractions

Polokwane offers a wide variety of leisure, sport and adrenaline activities for the whole family. The surrounding environment is rich in natural wildlife and birdlife, and the city is considered the premier hunting destination in South Africa.

Pietersburg Game Reserve is located outside Polokwane and houses more than 23 species of game on the 3 200 hectare reserve, set in an unspoilt bushveld environment. The Rhino Hiking Trail is a strong attraction for nature lovers and campers frequently return to the site bordering the reserve.

Pietersburg Bird & Reptile Sanctuary is situated just outside the city, on the R521 and is home to more than 280 species of birds. The Moletzie Bird Sanctuary protects rare birds like the Cape Vulture and the Modjadji Rainforest holds the largest concentration of indigenous cycads in the world. Cheune Crocodile Farm, Agatha Crocodile Farm, and The Ranch Lion Park provide popular family outings.

For some light entertainment and leisure activities, Meropa Casino & Entertainment World, Savannah Mall, the New Mall of the North, Polokwane Golf Course and even SA Breweries will ensure pleasurable moments. The surrounding area also offers plenty opportunity for 4x4 trips, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing and hunting.

On a cultural level, Polokwane offers carefully preserved archaeological and historical sites in the Makapan’s Valley, where the sediments, fossils, bones and artefacts found in the caves reveal a unique record of hominid habitation and evolution dating back 3.3 million years.

For those who appreciate our rich history, the Eersteling Monuments marks the country’s first gold crushing site and its first gold power plant. The Anglo Platinum Smelters is well worth a visit. A glimpse of the town’s first five years is offered by 23 000 glass negatives in the Hugh Exton Photographic Museum. The Irish House Museum (also known as the Green House Museum or more correctly, the Polokwane Cultural History Museum) has interesting displays on the Limpopo cultural groups and a taste of the traditional and modern-day culture and lifestyle of the Bakone people can be enjoyed at the Bakone Malapa Northern Sotho Open-Air Museum. The victims of the nearby Anglo-Boer War concentration camp are memorialised at the Concentration Camp Cemetery.

Apart from the widely available local arts and crafts, Polokwane presents an extensive art collection in the city’s art gallery and boasts more public sculptures per capita in its public parks than anywhere else in the country.
