EXPLORE Free State


The Free State is located in the central part of the country, as is know as the heart of South Africa. The landscape varies from grasslands to the mountains of Lesotho in the East. Nelson Mandela famously said: "the Free State gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in; that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons." The provinve is home to the second largest gold deposits in the country, around Welkom, and the variety of farming is evident, from maize and sunflowers to cherries and spinach. The Capital, Bloemfontein, has lots to see and do. It's also one of the three capitals of South Africa. The City is famous for it's Educational institutions and beautiful sandstone biuldings.

The Free State is a popular passing through point for visitors travelling from North to South or the other way around. Ideally situated between Gauteng, Kwazulu- Natal, Lesotho, Nort-West, Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga. The hospitality of the people is exactly what you can expect from all the small communities seperated from each other through stretches of open spaces, down to earth and very helpful. The main inhabitants speak Afrikaans and Sotho and the cultural mix is rich, as you travel between the province. Also the gateway for the mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho. All in all the Free State offers value for money for the discerning visitor, with lots to see and do.
