Two billion years ago a giant meteorite collided with earth, crashing into southern Africa's interior plateau, forming a six-mile-deep crater and releasing enough energy to vaporize solid rock. A site of total devastation, its effects rippled throughout Africa. But over the course of time, life conquered the barren lands and today the crater’s past is all but forgotten. This ancient landscape creates a haven for the unique plants and animals of the Vredefort Dome, a dazzling and rich ecosystem of unique plant and animal life.
