The N1 Highway - Part 3 - A surprisingly interesting area. From the Vredefort Dome around Johannesburg to the Springbok Flats
Show Notes

The largest meteorite impact crater in the world lies just South of Johannesburg, the Vredefort Dome. In this episode we explore Parys on the edge of the dome, go through the surprising towns of Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark, and skirt around Johannesburg and Pretoria.  Once we cross the line of the Magaliesberg, we are on the "Springbok Flats" - a magnificently fertile farming area, entwined with the history of the Voortrekkers and the early days of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek.
