The centre is a stone's throw away from attractions like Maropeng - "The Cradle of Humankind," Sterkfontein Caves, the Krugersdorp Lion Park and Krugersdorp Wildlife Park. Major shopping malls in the vicinity include Key West, Clearwater and Westgate, while Lanseria Airport provides a convenient gateway for those coming from far away.
The late Rev van Achterbergh gave this piece of land to the NG kerk (Dutch Reformed Church) more than 50 years ago. The first campers used tents. Later on sleeping units and a hall was erected. During the last six years Achterbergh was upgraded, by the Highveld Synod to a three star multi-functional centre! The campsites are well maintained. The halls may serve a variety of purposes with different arrangements.
