Ngaka Modiri Molema District


The region borders on Botswana

The Ngaka Modiri Molema District (Central Region) is home to Mahikeng, the capital of the province. Aptly named, the slogan of the capital is ‘The City of Goodwill’. It is a rapidly growing, modern, residential, administrative and commercial town, that contrasts with its fascinating history.

The area is fairly flat and dry in the west, becoming bushveld towards the east.

The Central Region offers game viewing – including the Big 5 – bird watching, hunting, fishing, sport, hospitality, conference facilities, shopping, gaming, Anglo-Boer War sites and a number of excellent guest houses and guest farms.


The region covers parts of the former Western Transvaal & Bophuthatswana.
