The capital of North West Province is a friendly place but is rather rundown and not really on the road to anywhere. Reasons to visit are few beyond the excellent museum and the chance to experience non-touristy urban South Africa far from the tourist gaze. Many locals still refer to the town as ‘Mafikeng’, which it was called until the name change was approved in 2010.
