Interesting info on the Bojanala Region

Well The Hartbeespoort Dam falls part of the Bojanala Region. This region is covered in natural bushveld vegetation. With the added attraction of the Magaliesberg, this region has much to offer to the eco-tourist. It is a natural game area with a number of fine game parks.

Here rests the Cradle of Humankind , The area abounds with relics from the Stone Age and early middle and late Iron Age. There are a large number of arts, crafts and curio outlets, especially in the Hartbeespoort Dam.

Sun City , The Pilanesberg Game Reserve also falls part of this region.

    I spent many, many hours at Hartbeespoort Dam as a child, I remember the zoo there then. I was there just 2 years ago and it was looking quite different, lots of mega houses being built. Also the snake park was cool.
