Polokwane is home to a population of fascinating diversity.  Polokwane means “Place of Safety” and with its low crime rate, carefully preserved social traditions and the overall acceptance of all identities, it is known as a peaceful city.  Visitors and new residents are warmly welcomed.​​

The well established residential areas, with their wide, tree lined streets make for tranquil living conditions and the municipal parks dotted throughout the city create a feeling of harmony.

Like all major cities demand on amenities and utilities are considerable and in an economy where large scale, energy driven sectors like mining dominate, planning for the needs of both commercial and private interest are on-going.

The cities residents are consulted on the provision of required services and necessary facilities and this assists in the facilitation of orderly and effective development.​
