Parys - Bustling Farmland and Green Fields

The weeping willows that line the Vaal River give the town of Parys a tranquil atmosphere. The bustling farmland, on which cattle, tobacco and corn are farmed, blankets the surrounding area in green fields and picturesque landscapes. As this beautiful farming town is only an hour from Johannesburg, many city dwellers escape to Parys to get away from their daily lives and enjoy the numerous activities and wonderful attractions that Parys has to offer.

One of the most popular attractions in Parys is the Vredefort Dome area. It is the site where a massive meteorite hit the earth approximately two thousand million years ago, making it the oldest impact site ever discovered in the world today. There are various operators in Parys that provide visitors with a wide variety of activities such as 4x4 routes, paintball, target shooting, river rafting, abseiling, kayaking, wall climbing, river tubing, catch & release fly fishing, game drives, mampoer tasting, hiking, bird watching, cheetah experience, archery, quad bike routes, hot air ballooning and berry picking.

Coffee shops, art, curio shops and a round of golf will also keep visitors busy during the day and if visitors find themselves in Parys near the end of the year, they are invited to join the fun and excitement of the Dome Adventure Festival. It is fun for whole family and includes activities such as the Dragon Boat Race, rock festival, competitions, stalls, fly fishing and other water sport activities.
