Free State

 

The Free State has much to offer the tourist in search of insight and adventure. As a result, various tourist routes have been suitably packaged to meet the needs of the on-the-road traveller.

The Maloti Route : This route follows the scenic Highlands of the Free State and over the border into the magnificent Maluti Mountains of Lesotho and ends at the Seekoelvlei Nature Reserve.

The Goldfields Route: Follow the fascinating history of the many gold mines of the Lejweleputswa area.

The Friendly N6 Route : Experience the Southern Free State by taking the N6 from Bloemfontein to Reddersburg, Smithfield and Rouxville and then onto Aliwal North and the rest of the Eastern Cape. Many interesting stop-overs along the way, especially at Smithfield, but also others.

BBT Heritage Route : Bloemfontein, Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu are in close geographical relationship to each other and, yet, have an extreme diverse cultural and political heritage.

The Battlefield Route: The province contains many historic sites related to the Anglo-Boer War, including 13 battlefield sites, 8 military monuments, 2 war museums and 3 war and concentration camp cemeteries.

Diamond & Wine Route: Follow the route of the diamond prospectors of the past and present. A man-made diamond hole at Jagersfontein of 760m beats the better-known Big Hole of Kimberley for size. Also visit the wine cellars of Landzicht and Wilreza in the scenic Jacobsdal area. Courtesy: Freestate Tourism
