North West is a province of South Africa. Its capital is Mafikeng. The province is located to the west of the major population centre of Gauteng.

Most of the province consists of flat areas of scattered trees and grassland. The Magaliesberg mountain range in the northeast extends about 130 km (about 80 miles) from Pretoria to Rustenburg. The Vaal River flows along the southern border of the province.

The most famous attraction in North West is the Sun City complex, which lies next to the Pilanesburg National Park.

Sun City is one of the world's biggest entertainment centres, with a casino, an 18-hole golf course, theatres and concert halls, beaches and a wave pool at the Valley of the Waves, a meticulously reconstructed tropical rainforest, and a number of world-class hotels that include the remarkable Palace of the Lost City.

Portions of two of South Africa's seven Unesco World Heritage sites fall within the borders of North West: the Vredefort Dome, the world's largest visible meteor-impact crater, and the Taung hominid fossil site, which has been incorporated into South Africa's Cradle of Humankind.
