The town is situated within the unique Waterberg Savannah Biosphere region and it offers its guests a gorgeous Bushveld experience with a vast array of entertaining activities.
The town of Pieter Potgietersrus was founded in 1858 and named in memory of Commandant General Pieter Potgieter who was killed near Makapansgat in 1854. The name changed to Potgietersrus in 1890 and then again in 2002 to Mokopane. The town was named after the Ndebele Chief Mokopane, who was also known as Makapan.
The town and immediate surroundings boast the fascinating ancient caves at Makapansgat Valley, the Big Five, San rock art, the biggest citrus farm in the southern hemisphere and many more. The area is also rich in minerals, platinum, diamonds and granite. In the adjacent rural area of Mahwereleng traditional lifestyles are still maintained.
