This medium-sized university town is close to the Vaal River, where it forms the border between the North-west Province and the Free State. Its main attraction is its proximity to the Dome Conservancy, where there are small game sanctuaries, mountain bike trails and interesting hikes. Potchefstroom is less than an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and is close to the Free State town of Parys, just on the other side of the river.
