Only 2 hours from Johannesburg and 30 km outside of the City of Rustenburg, Moedwil is just off the N4, en route to the Botswana border.
Moedwil falls under the greater Rustenburg/Bojanala region - malaria-free, natural bushveld terrain and a favourite part of the country for Gautengers. There are a number of game reserves and parks in this natural game area and the region offers the eco-tourist a selection of activities other than game viewing, such as hiking trails, abseiling, Stone Age relics (the Cradle of Humankind rests around Rustenburg and the Magaliesberg) and the Rustenberg Nature Reserve.
Rustenburg, proclaimed a city only in 1998 but founded as early as 1851, lies at the foot of the Magaliesberg. Its jacaranda-lined streets belie the fact that Rustenburg is essentially a platinum and precious metal mining town.
Rustenburg is close to the Lost City, home to designer golf courses and the largest casino in the country and the Rustenburg Ramble hosts a number of arts and crafts shops.
