Platinum deposits in this region of the North West are colossal. Other minerals include limestone, fluorspar iron and gemstones. Agriculture centers on tobacco, citrus and other fruit, cattle, groundnuts, sunflower seeds, maize and wheat.
The most scenic area of the North West, it offers adventure sports, holiday entertainment, eco-tourism, wildlife experiences, family leisure pursuits and sports, historic exploration and the opulence and excitement of Sun City and Palace of the Lost City extravagances.
