Tswaing is one of the world's best preserved meteorite impact craters. It was formed around 220 000 years ago by the impact of a 50m meteorite. For many years there was speculation about whether the crater was formed by a volcanic process or as the result of an impact event.

My first Wherigo and what better way to do it than with a group of other geocachers. We had great out in the Tswaing Crater.

A group of geocachers started this Wherigo at about 09h30 and spent a number of hours moving from point to point as directed by the cartridge. It was a delightful experience and we were very impressed by the detailed information about the surroundings that was communicated at each point.
It was equally impressive to find that the cartridge communication was in two languages and it was possible to switch between the languages at any stage.
Some of us discovered that our devices were not able to run the cartridge continuously for the more than 3 hours that it took to move from start to finish and as a result ended up relying on the cartridge running on the devices of some of our friends.
This experience was amazing and our congratulations go out to RickZA who compiled this delightful cartridge.
