Car Rental Rustenburg, South Africa
Rustenburg is located at the base of the Magaliesberg mountains in South Africa's North West Province, 115km east of Pretoria. One of the host cities for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Rustenburg has a temperate humid subtropical climate, with hot summers and mild winters, although its elevated position tends to mitigate the harshness of the summer temperatures.
It is a popular budget destination for those unwilling or unable to pay the high accommodation rates applicable in either Sun City or Pilanesberg National Park, both of which are under 50km away to the south-east.
Rustenburg is essentially a large country town with an urban edge. The main drag is Nelson Mandela Drive, a chaotic mass of pedestrians and hawkers dodging honking cars. The Waterfall Mall, off Rte 24 about 3km south of the town centre, is a quieter and more relaxing district for shopping and eating.
