Dome Adventures offers all "the Dome" experiences. The region is truly worthwhile exploring and we boast a range of tours, trails and adventures that will suit every visitors taste in both mountain and river experiences, as well as learning more about the unique geology and history of this great outdoors venue.
The mountains that surround the Vaal River were created 2023 million years ago when a massive meteorite struck earth with a devastating blow, the largest and oldest identifiable meteorite impact structure in the world. The rebound effect of the meteorite impact completely overturned the rock layers bringing gold bearing conglomerates closer to the surface. It was once was believed that the gold deposits in the mountains surrounding Venterskroon were richer than the Johannesburg goldfields.
