Polokwane means place of safety and this is characterised by the ancient baobab trees which guard the vast expanses of mountains and bushveld. The Limpopo Province is a land of dramatic contrasts illustrated by the age-old indigenous forests, ancient mountain fortresses and luxury modern day facilities.An area where the juxtaposition of old and new never ceases to amaze, it is a land of legend and romance that will intrigue visitors with tales of ancient tribes and fearless pioneers who braved the unknown in the days of old. To this day the province is the home of the enigmatic rain queen who, as the legend of her people proclaim, has the mystical power to make rain.Much of the land, particularly in the Kruger National Park and other game and nature reserves, is unspoilt providing sanctuary to large numbers of game. And for those who wish to experience the thrill of Africa in a more tangible style, Meropa Casino offers visitors a different adventure. « less

This casino is typical, We are Americans and have been many times to Reno, Tahoe and Las Vegas! I don't gamble but my father does, he enjoyed it! The restaurant is very good and affordable. They do have good entertainment as well!

The entrance deco encho the african histo ry and survival.it has a park filled with birds,raptiles and enough playground for kids to be themselves. The mini golf track and the go-cart is the thriller for this place.the food is good and... More

This is about the only thing you can do in Polokwane after dark. Other than that its just fine. It is like most Casinos only smaller the restaurant was above average.

I have been to Meropa couple of times, it's just a normal casino to me, but i think with addition of shops, and cinema it can be better, people prefer it for weddings and functions.

I still insists that Meropa is No1, though not like Sand or Sun City. Thumbs up for Meropa. I have nothing else to worry about it and I do believe that it can still stand amongst the best in the world.

Good one, people must not expect it the Casino to be like Las Vegas in the USA or Macau in China. By its standard, the location and clients its services it is quite good. Five Star for you Meropa

Upon entering this casino environment one experienced a sense of excitement. We found the casino to be professionally run and the overall level of housekeeping was very good. We did however feel that the tables become far too crowded after sunset, and more tables should be opened then. Since visiting this casino they regularly send me updates on promotions being... More

Unless you are staying at the Town Lodge and want dinner, there is no reason to visit the Casino & entertainment world, unless you are a gambler. Had a good steak at the Harvest restaurant though. The casino itself is unimpressive and kitchy.
