Fouriesburg is situated in the Brandwater Basin, south of Bethlehem, and offers you the fantastic scenery of the Red Mountains, the White Mountains, the Maluti Mountains, the splendid Golden Gate National Park and many historic sites from the Anglo-Boer War. It is ideal for out-door activities, such as hiking, horse riding, fishing, hunting, 4x4, quad biking and abseiling, but for those who just want to relax it is also the place to be.
The Fouriesburg area is just a few kilometers from the Lesotho border. It is therefore also the ideal starting point for day trips to Lesotho, with its majestic Maluti Mountains, the Katse Dam, its various nature reserves. Mont Plaisir is only 10 minutes driving from the border and therefore it is in winter the perfect stay for those who want to go snow skiing or just enjoying the snow at Afri-Ski.
For the more adventurous 4x4 lovers there is the challenge of the daring trip to Sani Pass. We also offer horse riding on the farm or in the area. Arrangements have to be made in advance.
Annual events in Fouriesburg are the Asparagus festival in September / October and the Surrender Hill marathon, a classifier for the Comrades marathon, and the Cherry festival in Ficksburg in November.
