Bloemfontein travel guide
Bloemfontein is located in the Free State province of South Africa. Not perhaps the first place one would think of when planning a South African holiday as one usually thinks of Cape Town, Durban, the Garden Route or vibey Johannesburg, but Bloemfontein has a charm of its own and there is plenty to do for those who enjoy nature, history and art and culture.
Naval Hill: Visit the ‘Centre of Bloemfontein’ in the middle of the Franklin Game Reserve for incredible views of the whole city in every direction. Entry is free.
Free State National Botanical Gardens - Beautiful landscaped gardens by daylight or join a moonlight walk along the paved walkways. Nature talks are offered
Anglo Boer War Museum - Step back in time to experience the volatile hostilities that shook the country over a century ago.
