South Africa Things To DoThings To Do in Free State

Lying between the Vaal and Orange Rivers in the heart of South Africa, the Free State is the country's "bread basket", producing over 70% of the grain on 30 000 farms. Consistently blue skies and predominantly prairie-like scenery, accented only by the odd hill and the Eastern Highlands, await the visitor in a part of the country that is imbued with a warm hospitality. From the Maluti Route that follows the Highlands across the border into Lesotho, to pretty towns like Clarens, there are a wealth of activities and breathtaking scenery. Spend time in the city of roses, fossil hunting, exploring Rock Art, or riding a steam train along the Bethlehem-Bloemfontein railway.
