About 14 years ago, some local artists and crafters pooled ideas to bring the public out from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg city life into the nearby peace and tranquil surroundings of greater Southern Gauteng… and so the Vaal meander was born. Just one hour south of Johannesburg both International tourists and the public, stressed by daily Johannesburg life, are invited to see the maestros at work plying their trade as well as visit historical and cultural sites.

Over the past years the Vaal Meander has grown to include many other fascinating attractions. It is the ideal site for a meander route – tailor made to suit your interests. It makes for a lovely day trip or for those who would prefer, a longer stay to seek out little country hideaways, quaint country inns, craft factories, outdoor adventure centres, entertainment, animals, sporting facilities, boating and upmarket country conference venues as well as a host of delightful bed and breakfast establishments and romantic wedding venues.

Some of the main attractions can be found along the Vaal River which features 56km of navigable water as well as many other water sports. Boating and yachting facilities are found on the Vaal Dam, which is fast becoming popular as a weekend getaway, with property sales increasing at it’s many marina developments.

The Vaal Meander has emerged as its own business identity whose objectives are to market the region and increase the number of visitors to the area. As part of the marketing infrastructure that has been put in place, The Vaal Meander produces a yearly publication that’s lists and provides information about all of the tourism-orientated products that are available within the region.

These brochure/maps are distributed through Gauteng Tourism Agency outlets (airports, info centres etc.), as well as outdoor shows (Outdoor Adventure Expo, Star Getaway Show etc.) where stand space is shared with Gauteng Tourism Agency. 100 000 publications were printed this year and the numbers is growing annually.
