Construction on Kwa Maritane already commenced centuries ago. An ancient alkaline volcano fashioned the very hills that Kwa Maritane stands on today. Hence it’s name, which literally means “Place of the Rock”.

The Pilanesberg National Park is located in the North West Province of South Africa, west of Pretoria and is administered by the North West Parks Board. Unlike most other national parks in South Africa, the Pilanesberg is not managed by South African National Parks.
At 572 km2 it is the fourth largest national park in South Africa. The crater of a long extinct volcano is the setting of Pilanesberg National Park – a fascinating alkaline complex produced by volcanic eruptions some 1300 million years ago. Pilanesberg is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world. Its rare rock types and structure make it a unique geological feature.
Ancient, even by geological time scales, this extinct volcano is the most perfect example of an alkaline ring complex. A number of rare (but not necessarily economically important) minerals occur in the park. Pilanesberg National Park rates high amongst the world’s outstanding geological phenomena. Pilanesberg has survived ages of erosion and stands high above the surrounding bushveld plains.
The early presence of man can be seen in the numerous Stone and Iron Age sites that are scattered throughout the park. The area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills – the formation rises from the surrounding plains like a bubble.
The structure of the park is termed the “Pilanesberg National Park Alkaline Ring Complex”. The very topography makes the area a feast for the eye. Here are syenite koppies, thickly forested ravines, typical bushveld and also rolling grasslands and lightly wooded areas.
Off the centre of the park is Thabayadiotso, “the Proud Mountain” and the beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. The Park ranks among the largest of the national parks in South Africa (it is in fact the fourth largest park) and covers an area of 55 000 hectare.Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.
