ACCOMMODATION IN RUSTENBURG
Rustenburg is surrounded by citrus groves, fields of tobacco and chicken farms but it is primarily a mining area with extensive granite quarrying and, even more importantly, some of the richest platinum mines in the world. Rustenburg has some beautiful old buildings and a few interesting monuments, and its purple jacaranda trees soften the streets in late spring. The nearby Kgaswane Mountain Reserve (previously Rustenburg Nature Reserve) offers two lovely overnight hiking trails, a number of day walks and sightings of plains games, as well as beautiful mountain scenery with streams, waterfalls and rock pools. Rustenburg is one of the host cities of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
