Rustenburg Kloof in Rustenburg, North West Province

Rustenburg Kloof

To the local Rustenburg community, reference to Rustenburg Kloof might implicate the landmark or refer to the Rustenburg Kloof holiday resort at the foot of the Kloof or to the Donkerhoek area of Rustenburg.

The Rustenburg Kloof as landmark

The Rustenburg Kloof is the most prominent and well-known landmark of Rustenburg in the North West Province.  The intimidating rock-face with the split stares right at you and is such a magnificent natural beauty that it is no wonder that the well-known artist, J.H. Pierneef, decided to capture the almost haunting beauty in some of his paintings.

Rustenburg Kloof by JH PierneefI choose the word haunting beauty, as it is the feeling provoked when considering that this rock-face stood ever present through all the major historic events in Rustenburg.

It witnessed the slaying of the Magatse by Mzilikazi’s warriors,  watched and waited through the devastation of the  Anglo Boer War and subsequent Great Depression and looked on as the mining industry grew and brought prosperity to Rustenburg.


Through good and bad times, devastation and prosperity, the Kloof will always be Rustenburg’s most famous landmark.
