About Vredefort Meteorite Trails

If you ever watched the movie ‘Bio-Dome’ and thought it was great that they had so many different ecosystems in one confined space, then make sure you visit Parys and the surrounding Vredefort Dome.

This World heritage site embodies bushveld, riverine and forest areas to savannah ridges and contains a huge assortment of plant, reptile, bird and animal species. The Vredefort Meteorite trail will take you through these interesting and unusual areas allowing you to explore these radical changes in ecosystems and see the vast range of life that lives within. Discover the Boer war memorials along the way and spot the San rock art and relics from the gold rush era.

The trail is approximately 60 kilometres long, is difficult at some points and is suitable for children 12 years and older. Self catering accommodation is available along the way for an overnight stay. Water is provided in the huts and you will need to ensure you bring everything else with you, such as your own crockery & cutlery, blankets & pillows and of course toilet paper.
