Welkom Car Hire - Did You Know?

  • A small mining community lived on the site of present day Welkom from 1937 but it wasn’t until a decade later that a major gold discovery led to a boom in the town’s fortunes
  • It became a city 21 years to the day after it was founded
  • Welkom is also trying to develop its tourism industry by focusing on its natural resources
  • Nearly 200,000 people live in Welkom
  • The city’s name, unsurprisingly means ‘Welcome’ in Afrikaans

Welkom Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Welkom?
Welkom is a relatively new city, founded on the hope of gold and flourishing when a major seam was discovered. It’s also trying to branch out into tourism and has developed casinos, shopping malls, theatres and more to attract city breakers. Outside the city you have a wealth of natural sights too and, despite not being in the main safari region, it has three safari parks of note.

How do I get to Welkom?
It’s not easy to access the city by air, despite there being a small airport just outside the city. Welkom Airport takes company charters and general aviation only so the closest airport of note is at Bloemfontein a hundred miles away. Bloemfontein has no international flights so you’ll still have to take a connection there from Johannesburg if travelling in from abroad. If connecting via Johannesburg, Bloemfontein Airport car rental is well appointed and good option to make the final leg of the journey.

What can I see and do in Welkom?
Most of Welkom’s attractions are in the city and include great shopping opportunities by day and at night, the chance to have a good meal in one of the many excellent restaurants before enjoying a show at the city’s theatre. If you’ve still got the energy and some spare cash you can then round off your evening at the Goldfields casino.
By day you can also head out of the city in your Welkom hire car and visit the Sandveld, Rustfontein or Erfenis Dam safari parks.  As they’re less well known, you’ll find them more peaceful and have a greater chance of seeing the animals.
