Description

The Vredefort Dome, also known as the Vredefort Crater, is the world’s largest verified impact crater, measuring a surprising 300km in diameter. The World Heritage Site was formed after a meteorite 10km in diameter hit the earth more than 2 billion years ago and has been added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites for its exceptional geological interest. While the crater itself has since eroded away, the remaining geological structure is known as the Vredefort Dome; consisting of a ring of hills measuring 70km in diameter.
