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

I only had supper at the Casino. It is small and very well developed. Clean, not too noisy with friendly staff and good food. The cleanliness was noticeable and I will go there again if I am in the vicinity.

Great fun for the whole family, not just a casino. There are plenty to do for the whole family, go carting for big and small, games for kids while parents enjoy the casino and the paintball (Predators Paintball) are the most fun with a swimming pool to cool down in after a hard day of playing with braai facilities as...

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!

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.
