The Royal Marang hotel has much to offer ecotourism, as it is home to natural bushveld vegetation and the Magliesberg Mountain Range. Safari-orientated tourists can encounter the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant) at the nearby Pilanesberg Game Reserve, perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater, while the Rustenburg Nature Reserve offers hiking trails with abundant birdlife, fauna and flora.
Arts and culture – The Bafokeng are originally baKwena people. Bafokeng are descendants of the Sotho-Tswana people that just over a thousand years ago travelled southwards from Central Africa over a period of 200 years. A substantial portion of the people settled in the area now incorporated into the countries of Botswana and Zimbabwe. Bafokeng, however continued travelling south before finally settling in the 12th century in an area now known as the Rustenburg valley where the community remained relatively stable.
The Rustenburg Ramble - Other than game viewing, tourists can enjoy the Rustenburg Ramble - a meander that takes in craft galleries, farm stalls and places to eat; the Kgaswane Mountain Reserve just outside Rustenburg; the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace; and the Waterfall Mall.
