North West

Beestekraal is more of a farming community than a town. It is located off the R556 road north-west of Brits in the North West province of South Africa.

The town itself doesn't have much to offer the visitor other than a quaint restaurant and pub. There are a number of private game farms in the area and it is located close to Vaalkop Dam Nature Reserve.

The Beestekraal Stasie Restaurant is a popular destination for bikers and car enthusiasts who organise breakfast runs to the restaurant. The old station building was converted into a restaurant and features many nostalgic signs and other items.

There is some accommodation available at game lodges in the area.
