Party Down in Vanderbijlpark Town

Megatrip
Join other DreamTrippers for a Megatrip where you’ll be treated to an unforgettable river boat cruise & potijekos competition, all while staying 3 nights at a chic hotel in an idyllic riverside setting. Book by October 26.

About Your Trip

Come party in Gauteng! On this Megatrip, you’ll have plenty of time to mix and mingle with your fellow DreamTrippers, where you’ll share stories and experiences or just make new friends — all in a casual setting designed for good times. And it all takes place in Vanderbijlpark, a town set in the Highveld of South Africa’s Gauteng province. Even though it’s considered an industrial center for steel, the town is full of fun things to do and see — museums, malls, casinos, parks and much more. The Vaal River runs right through it, offering water-based activities of all kinds.

During your time in this quaint town, you’ll get to see the river up close with a sightseeing ride on the hotel’s Liquid Lounge Party Boat. This magnificent waterway reveals the tranquility and beauty of nature within this province. Then, get ready for good-natured play when you participate in a potijekos competition. After teams are formed, work together to make a delicious meal and see what team wins the Best Potjie Pot award. When the judging over, feast on yours — and other others — creations.

The rest of your fabulous Vanderbijlpark Megatrip is totally schedule-free, so you can do as much — or as little — as you wish with your downtime! Be sure to get out and explore all this area has to offer.

What we love:
• Vanderbijlpark’s attractions include the Sylviavale Heritage Museum and the Vredefort crater, one of the world’s oldest meteor impact sites on record.
• The Vaal Mall, conveniently located near the hotel, is the region’s largest shopping center and is themed to reflect the winding Vaal River.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!

Destination

Gauteng — “place of gold” in the Sesotho language — may be South Africa’s smallest province, but it easily claims the largest population in the country. The area is highly urbanized, though conservation efforts have succeeded in maintaining several nature reserves, archaeological sites, vast caves and botanical gardens.

Hotel Check-in Requirements

By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card. I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia.

Each individual, including each child, who is coming along with you on your DreamTrip is required to have a booking prior to the commencement of the trip. If you do not book and pay for each such person in advance of the trip, you will be charged the hotel’s then-current rate, not the trip price, for each such person at the time of your check-in.

Also, pricing for children can vary, and may be higher than pricing for adults.
