Information on Parys


Parys

Parys is the gateway to the Vredefort Dome, the Oldest and largest meteorite impact site in the world. This picturesque town on the Vaal River reminds you of the French city on the banks of the Seine. Today Parys offers a happy medium between old world country charm and adventurous outdoor activities.

The 'Vredefort' dome is the remains of an ancient crater, formed 2000 million years ago when a meteorite as big as table mountain struck the earth. The crater was about 90km in diameter with the center of impact near Vredefort. Today not much of the original crater is left except for the koppies around Parys and Vredefort with its unique fauna and flora, friendly people, various tourism attractions and some very interesting geological sites. In the conservancy area you will find baboons, jackal, unique birds, a variety of game on some of the game ranches as well as a very clever leopard that will on a frequent basis catch some game at a number of farms and always somehow manage to evade his pursuers.

Parys offers natural beauty and adventurous activities such as river rafting, abseiling, adventure racing, mountain biking, etc. Because the Vaal River is so wide at Parys the rapids just increase in wildness as the water levels rise. Parys is one of the few places in South Africa where you will find a 900m long continuous rapid with water flowing at more than 300 cubic meters/second.
