Information about the Vaal Triangle:

The Vaal Triangle is a triangular area of land formed by Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark and Sasolburg - together they comprise a substantial urban complex in South Africa about 60 km south of Johannesburg. Meyerton, just north of Vereeniging, is also generally included in the complex

The area straddles the Vaal River and is a major industrial region, which is home to former Iron and Steel Corporation Iscor, now ArcelorMittal South Africa and Sasol, the steel and oil-from-coal processing facilities.

Nearby is the Vaal Dam, from which the massive PWV megalopolis (Pretoria, Witwatersrand and Vaal Triangle) draws its water. The PWV forms the urban heart of Gauteng province.

The Vaal Dam is well-patronised by people from Johannesburg over the weekends and during holidays, as it provides extensive water recreation facilities some 70 km south of the city.

The industries in the Vaal Triangle owe their growth to the basic resources of coal and water.  The building of the Victoria Falls and Transvaal Power Station in the early nineteenth century laid the foundation for the area to be the 'Powerhouse' of South Africa.

There are over 60 primary and secondary schools within the Vaal Triangle area. Of these, 16 primary and 8 secondary schools are located in Vanderbijlpark.

The Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University is located in Vanderbijlpark. This campus is situated on the banks of the Vaal River and has student numbers exceeding 3000. The Vaal University of Technology (previously the Vaal Triangle Technikon) was established more than 40 years ago in 1966 an boasts more than 17 000 students.

Home to the Emerald Resort & Casino that  is situated on the lush banks of the Vaal River, a mere hour’s drive from O.R. Tambo International Airport.

The extensive property, along 7km’s of river frontage, is the ideal location for a business breakaway, corporate or private event, team building conference, or a fun-filled family getaway. The Resort offers an array of accommodation options, restaurants, entertainment like the all-year-round heated Water Park – Aquadome, to Animal World Zoo and game drives, ten pin bowling, outdoor activities as well as the Emerald African Spa.

There are a few interesting monuments to see in the Vaal Triangle area of South Africa, most in and around Vereeniging, and a few points to consider regarding the accessibility of South Africa’s history and heritage…

Many areas in South Africa can boast historical finds relating the movement of the San people (also known as the San Bushmen), other indigenous tribes and the French-Dutch colonists who became the forebears of today’s Afrikaans people. There are also monuments commemorating the fallen soldiers and glorious victors of the Anglo Boer War, to the women and children who died in the English run concentration camps, and monuments to the victors and loser in various tribal wars.

There are monuments and tributes to the incidents, heroes and martyrs in the Stuggle Against Apartheid, and there are pre-historic archeological discoveries and curiosities, from plant fossils to dinosaur bones to the fossilised remains of hominids and early humans – many incidental and others of considerable significance.

Sadly, like many areas in South Africa, mention may be made of San Rock Art or fossils having been found here and there, but the site is either emptied, inaccessible, overgrown, vandalised or mentioned over and over in tourism sites without anyone actually having a clue as to where it is or how to get there – not least the local tourism authority. Monuments are often non-descript, easily passed by if you don’t know what they are there for, and some (though by no means all) historical sites such as Boer War graveyards are today forgotten by many, the tragedies and heroism of individuals lost in long grass…

On the other side of that coin, much of what has been found has been safely stored over the years and is on display at a museum somewhere, and there are institutions that safeguard our heritage. So read on for a brief outline of what you can see, and where, for exasperation-free insight into the human, natural and historical heritage of the Vaal Triangle, with much of it concentrated in and around the city of Vereeniging.
