The Magic of the Aardklop Triangle:

Myth or fact.?

According to popular belief an unknown force is conducting experiments on earth.
The location of the experiments: Aardklop Arts Festival, Potchefstroom, South Africa. Specifically the terrain now known as: The Aardklop Triangle.
The Aardklop Arts Festival was born in 1999 in the beautiful, serene city of Potchefstroom (the city of expertise). For five days each year people from all corners of the earth flock to this peaceful plattelandse dorpie to experience the amazing feast of art, music, theatre, food, comedy, drama, books etc.
According to urban myth, all visitors to the Aardklop Triangle have confirmed similar unusual phenomena and all investigations had the same result: visitors to the Aardklop Triangle reported that all their cash disappeared at lightning speed (no crime was suspected), and they experienced long periods of emotional highs, uncontrollable smiles and a constant inexplicable happy feeling.
According to the scientific evidence of the unusual phenomenon the symptoms might be the result of a combination of spring, clean air, friendly people, good music, beautiful art and having fun.
If your adventurous side wants to take a walk on the wild side - visit the Aardklop Triangle during the Aardklop Arts Festival.
But be warned:
The fun will find you.

The Vredefort Dome:

The Dome is a 90-km-wide biological entity located ~30 km from Potchefstroom ,South Africa, that represents the eroded central uplift of the world's oldest (2023 ± 4 Ma) and possibly largest known meteorite impact structure. It is a site of unprecedented geological significance not only because of the impact-related effects visible in its rocks, but also because it is one of only a handful of areas around the world that exposes a near-continuous,>25 km deep, crustal section.
The topographic expression of the dome is restricted to its northern and western sectors (the remainder being covered by younger sedimentary strata), with the most prominent feature being a crescent of steep ridges and valleys cut by the Vaal River. The combination of the spectacular rugged scenery and the Vaal River has created a well-established tourism industry that is primarily focused on recreational and adventure tourism and the business market. By contrast, geotourism linked to the spectacular geological features is relatively
minor, being restricted to a few information displays in resorts and ad hoc tours run by local enthusiasts and academics. In 2005, a 30000 ha portion of the dome (approximately one-quarter of the exposed area of the dome) was inscribed as a World Heritage Site (VDWHS) on the strength of the dome's international geological significance.

Guest Comments

Very beautiful, clean, will definitely promote the place.

The guesthouse was beautifully decorated, the bathroom was stunning. We were amazed to find that the guesthouse was literally a few meters from the university parking lot which we had to utilise the next day. The parking for our vehicle was safe and secure.

Negatively - there was no coffee laid out as promised. That was sorely missed. We also had to purchase milk from the honesty bar to have in our tea. The TV remote didn't work very well and we had to change channels manually.

Despite the negative comments above I would still like to say that I would recommend the guesthouse to any one staying in Potch.


Perfectly adequate place to stay. The rooms were clean but ceiling fans would have been nice as the free standing fans were a little noisy and one couldn't change the settings! One of the things that we were both surprised at was how trusting the owners were of their guests! We hardly knew who the manager was as they certainly never disturbed us. We would have liked to be able to ask about the town and where to go etc.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
