Meropa Casino and Entertainment World is situated in the Limpopo Province...

Meropa Casino and Entertainment World is situated in the Limpopo Province only 5km from the capital Polokwane (previously Pietersburg). 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.

Very disappointed in the service at this Restaurant. Took the waiter some time to collect our drinks order and when we ordered our starters they did not have avocado in stock and after we ordered main course they did not have lamb curry in stock. Service not sufficient and quick.

This casino is on the small side when you compare it to other casinos in South Africa. Not much entertainment for kids and only a few restaurants. Unless you are a serious gambler there is not much to do here.

There is entertainment for children but I rate kids will get bored very quickly. This casino caters mostly for people who want to gamble. The restaurant is average at best with limited variations on the menu.

Place with many choice around it, nice restaurant and a mini cultural village to visit. Plenty of parking and a reasonable car wash in the vicinity
