7km Walk the Crater

Located about 40km northwest of Pretoria, Tswaing is a 1 946 hectare conservation area that is home to a meteorite impact crater and surrounding wetland, as well as the remains of an old salt factory. Tswaing, which means “place of salt” in Setswana, is the site where a meteorite half a football field in size slammed into the Earth 220 000 years ago, forming a crater 1.4km in diameter and 200m deep.

The trail is 7kms, fairly flat with few slight climbs, descends & technical rocks. It should take 2 – 3 hours to complete the trail with magnificent view points. This is the right trail for beginners.
