    Tswaing, which means “place of salt” in Setswana, is the site where a meteorite half a football field in size crashed into the Earth 220,000 years ago, forming a crater 1.4km in diameter and 200m deep. Tswaing crater is one of about 170 impact craters in the world and one of four known impact craters in South Africa. It's one of the invariable tourist attractions in South Africa. The Tswaing Crater is surrounded by dense bush. Tswaing Lake, is 100m in diameter in the centre of the crater, and is filled by rainwater and a spring.

Visitors can choose between three trails that lead to and from the Tswaing Crater rim.
