Vanderbijlpark is an industrial city situated in the Vaal Triangle region of Gauteng in South Africa. Owing to the abundance of business opportunities and factories, Vanderbijlpark mainly appeals to business travellers.
The Vaal Triangle consists of Vanderbijlpark, Vereeniging and Sasolberg, all close to Johannesburg. This is a highly industrialised area with many factories and steel works operations. Vanderbijlpark is home to the Sasol Oil Refinery and ArcelMittel South Africa (previously the Iron and Steel Corporation of South Africa). Steel is a particularly important part of the city's identity as it is in fact its reason for existence.
Back in the 1940's the Iron and Steel Corp needed an extra site for their steel works due to the increased demand brought about by World War 2. As a result, another steelworks was set up along with a model town - now known as Vanderbijlpark.
A significant characteristic of the city, apart from the steelworks, is the Vaal River. The river plays a major role in Gauteng's water infrastructure and supplies most of the water for Joburg, the Vaal Triangle and parts of the Free State. Vanderbijlpark is situated on the river's bank, giving residents and visitors easy access to the recreational activities the river provides for.
Water sports like water-skiing, power-boating and jet-skiing are all popular activities on the Vaal River. Fishing is also a popular past time.
Other things to do in Vanderbijlpark include having a round of golf at the Emfuleni Golf Course, winning a few bob at the Emerald Casino Resort and then spending your winnings at the Vaal Mall.

I only visited Emerald which was the main purpose of the short visit which I can say was great and great value for money. I loved that the Guesthouse was so close.

We enjoyed Vanderbijlpark, the only thing that bothered me was that some of the street names were missing or not readable and we struggled to get to the guest house, otherwise lovely!
- Roselle Jacobs
As far as we can see is that part of Vanderbijlpark is very classy and peaceful. We enjoyed the quiet traffic, and we reached our destination in no time.

I was surprised at the activities all around, the place has so much to offer. I enjoyed the Emerald Resort and the Stonehaven boat cruise. I am definitely coming back again.
