Carryblaire River Retreat Parys

Accommodation South Africa

About Parys and the Vredefort Dome: Parys is a small and vibrant town in South Africa. It lies on the banks of the Vaal River 120 km south of Johannesburg. Parys offers visitors a variety of attractions, ranging from browsing wonderful antique shops and art galleries to adventure sporting. Parys itself is situated inside the Vredefort Dome, which is the remains of an ancient crater. The crater was formed 2000 million years ago when a meteorite as big as Table Mountain struck the earth. The crater was about 90 km in diameter with the center of impact near Vredefort. The Vredefort Dome area received World Heritage Site status in August 2005.

Only an hours drive from JHB and nestled on the banks of the Vaal River near Parys, Carryblaire River Retreat embodies peace, tranquility and a sense of oneness with nature. With its own natural island and being a registered bird sanctuary the views offered at Carryblaire are breathtaking and some of the most beautiful in Africa. The Yellowfish that leap through the water are considered to rival Trout in their ability to entice fishermen in a challenge of wits, while the calls of the nesting Fish Eagles remind us of their superiority in the air. Drink in the beauty and serenity around you, and let us and nature do the rest...
