Rustenburg is a town of just over a 100,000 citizens that nestles at the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountains in the North-West Province of South Africa. The town was established in 1851 as an administrative centre for the surrounding farming area as this fertile area produces citrus fruit, maize, peanuts, sunflower seeds, tobacco, wheat and cattle.
Before the arrival of European settlers, the area had been settled by agrarian Setswana-speaking tribes for hundreds of years. Today, Rustenburg’s population has a large Tswana population with many belonging to the Royal Bafokeng Nation.
While Rustenburg’s economy has historically had a strong agricultural focus, this began to change from 1929 when platinum mining began in the area and today the area is known as one of the world’s primary platinum production areas. Platinum is a dense, malleable precious metal used in catalytic converters, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts, dentistry equipment and jewellery.
There are a number of sites of cultural and historic interest in and around Rustenburg with the tribal traditions of the Bafokeng, Bakgatla and Botswana tribes providing a rich cultural breadth. As the area also saw a number of clashes during the Anglo-Boer War, there are a number of prominent battlefields and memorials in the vicinity. The area also contains archaeological remains from the Iron and Stone Ages.
Rustenburg gained a place on the international tourist map with the opening of the Sun City resort and casino in 1979 and the subsequent construction of the Lost City resort. The Pilanesberg Game Reserve sits just outside the town adjacent to the resorts.
The town was also an official host city during the 2010 Soccer World Cup, hosting five group-stage matches, and a round of 16 knock-match in which Ghana overcame the United States of America.
