Rustenburg, including Tlhabane and Phokeng, is a town located in the Bojanala region of the North West Province in South Africa. In the 1800s the Voortrekkers claimed this, the Magaliesberg area, as their homeland. The area soon thrived with crops and livestock and rapidly grew into a peaceful community.
