Potchefstroom at a glance
The City of Expertise
Potchefstroom, one of the oldest formal towns in South Africa, boasts a rich and varied historical and cultural heritage, including many national monuments. Probably the most popular being the Oak Avenue which is 6,84 km long. The avenue of beautiful oak trees is the longest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. The trees, planted in 1910, cover an area from the Agricultural College to the Lakeside Holiday resort.
A large variety of tourism services cater for the interests of all age groups.
2000 million years ago a giant meteorite struck the earth near the present day village of Vredefort. The impact created a crater some 90km in diameter and caused a tremendous shift in the earth’s crust across a radius of over 150km now known as the Vredefort Dome. This fascinating natural phenomenon, different in shape and vegetation from its surrounding area, caters for the adventurous. Today the Dome Conservancy is one of the province’s prime adventure tourism sites with numerous tour operators and accommodation facilities catering for campers, hikers, rock climbers, canoeists and white water rafters, with hiking trails, river rafting, abseiling, fly fishing etc.
On the accommodation side, tourists may stay at the Lakeside Resort or camp alongside the waterfront. This popular resort is situated on the banks of Potchefstroom Dam on the Mooi River, and boasts a variety of facilities and entertainment, including tennis courts, facilities for water sports and angling.
Apart from sports and recreational activities, the city offers a rich variety of entertainment. The Sanlam Auditorium of the PU for CHO, serves as a theatre for the city and neighbouring towns. This venue is well equipped and has hosted ample local, national and international artists.
