Gauteng DestinationsSasolburg, Southern Gauteng

Situated on the southern banks of the Vaal river, Sasolburg forms part of the Vaal Triangle (Vanderbijlpark, Vereeniging and Sasolburg).

Sasolburg is a sizeable town, measuring just less than 80 square kilometres in area, that is situated in the South African province of the Free State. It is perched along the banks of the mighty Vaal River and is close to the Vaal Dam, where a host of watersports and other leisure activities are part of the appeal of this natural treasure.

Sasolburg, established as a town in the 1950’s, is part of the Vaal Triangle, which also includes Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging. One of the things for which Sasolburg is well known is the refinery, which is one of only two workable coal-derived oil refineries on earth. Initially, this town was established with the aim of providing housing for employees of SASOL, which remains one of South Africa’s largest and most important energy and chemical companies.

Due to its high altitude, the climate of Sasolburg is relatively dry. Summers are hot and winters are cold, making spring and autumn the best times to visit for those that want comfortable, temperate conditions.

The Vaal Dam is an excellent spot for windsurfing, in particular. Other popular tourist attractions in and around Sasolburg include the Ettienne Rousseau Theatre, and the surrounding hiking and walking trails.
