At the historic farm Nooitgedacht, on the banks of the Vaal River 20 km from Potchefstroom in the well-known Vredefort Dome World Heritage Site, you can wake up to the call of the Fish eagle and really find peace away from the city rush to enjoy the beautiful African nature.

GP and Hesmé Schoeman are the proud owners of this beautiful family farm that has belonged to the Schoeman family since 1856. Some of the original buildings survived the test of time and the war of 1899 to 1902, when nearly every building in the old Transvaal and Free State was burned down. Evidence of the war can be seen in the cellar, where shrapnel damaged the ceiling and roof. The foundations of the old house that was burned down by the British troops can also be seen. The old waenhuis is one of the oldest buildings, if not the oldest, in the region and dates from the early pioneer time, and the original klipkraal, landmuur and cemetery can also be seen.

There are ruins of Iron Age kraals as well as the Amazon mine, where gold was mined from 1886. The farm is well-known for superb yellow-fish waters. To catch this indigenous fish on a fly is an experience every enthusiast must enjoy. There are also hiking routes on the farm, as well as ideal routes for jogging and mountain biking. Other activities nearby include game-viewing and river rafting.

Vredefort Dome South Africa

Vredefort Dome  Accommodation

 VREDEFORT DOME

UNESCO World Heritage Site

South Africa’s most recent UNESCO World Heritage Site is Vredefort Dome, a dramatic landscape formed by the impact of a massive meteorite impact structure, called an astrobleme. Situated roughly 120km south west of Johannesburg in the Free State, it dates back 2,023 million years and is the oldest astrobleme on the planet. Not only is it the granddaddy of meteorite craters, Vredefort Dome is also the deepest and largest with a radius of 190km.

The gigantic meteorite impact caused immense shifts in the earth’s crust over hundreds of kilometres and is evident in the spectacular and somewhat craggy terrain. The impact zone is remarkably visible in satellite images and photographs taken from the space shuttle. Vredefort Dome demonstrates exciting and compelling evidence of the evolution and geological record of the earth.

But there’s more than just fascinating geological history, the tortured landscape sustains a variety of natural habitats including an exceptional wild olive forest. The Vaal River meanders through the hills and there is a great diversity of bird life with over 400 bird species recorded. Along with excellent birdwatching there is plentiful small game and the chance of maybe even spotting a nocturnal leopard or caracal.
For the young at heart or seriously active, the region is a great place for outdoor and adventure activities with great horse riding, hiking, abseiling, rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing and paddling. The sleepy dorp of Vredefort lies within the crater along with the arty-crafty little town of Parys which is close to some fun rafting trips on the Vaal River.

Just 30 km North West of Vredefort and in the North West Province is the historic university town of Potchefstroom. "Potch" has an annual arts festival at the end of September and early October so booking ahead at this time is a wise idea.
History buffs should check out the Potchefstroom Museum, which houses a rare Voortrekker wagon from the Battle of Blood River in 1938. Also of interest is the Totius Museum, the house that Totius, a celebrated poet and key figure of the Afrikaans language movement lived in a century ago. Paintings dedicated to him by the famous and controversial artist Jacob Pierneef adorn the walls.

UNESCO World Heritage Selection Criteria:

Vredefort Dome is the oldest, largest, and most deeply eroded complex meteorite impact structure in the world. It is the site of the world’s greatest single, known energy release event. It contains high quality and accessible geological (outcrop) sites which demonstrate a range of geological evidences of a complex meteorite impact structure. The rural and natural landscapes of the serial property help portray the magnitude of the ring structures resulting from the impact. The serial nomination is considered to be a representative sample of a complex meteorite impact structure. A comprehensive comparative analysis with other complex meteorite impact structures demonstrated that it is the only example on earth providing a full geological profile of an astrobleme below the crater floor, thereby enabling research into the genesis and development of an astrobleme immediately post impact.

Justification for inscription

  • Criterion (viii): To be outstanding examples representing major stages of earth's history, including the record of life, significant on-going geological processes in the development of landforms, or significant geomorphic or physiographic features.
