Situated on the banks of the Mooirivier roughly 120 kilometers south of Johannesburg is the quaint town, Potchefstroom. Potchefstroom also referred to as Potch by the locals, is known for being an academic town.
It is home to the popular North-West University and is surrounded by a buzzing student life. It is also home to many tertiary institutions, creating a good combination of student life and a family environment.
Potch is the ideal place to visit if you are looking to escape the fast-paced Johannesburg as it is surrounded by many functioning farms’s, which creates a friendly, laid back environment. Potchefstroom has a rich historical legacy which is evident in the old Edwardian City Hall building and many other national monuments such as old police stations, churches and magistrates offices. It is recommended to visit the Potchefstroom Museum and the Goetz Fleischack Museum to experience the history of Potch first hand.
