Tswaing Crater Environmental Centre


This “museum’  began to take shape with the enthusiastic contributions by local interested parties of township people living on the outskirts of this 220 000 year old meteorite crater. Today apart from the meteorite crater itself it holds a herd of indigenous cattle breed which is being preserved as a gene pool.

Tswaing (Tswana for salt) is now a nature reserve with its geological centre piece and also houses indigenous plant and bird species that one can observe first hand when walking the trails especially designed to show off the best that Tswaing can offer.

There are beautiful hiking trails situated in around the crater allowing you to explore the crater and the impact on its surroundings while also spotting some antelope
