Activities/Attractions: The Free State is a rural province of wide horizons and blue skies, with farmland, mountains, goldfields and widely dispersed towns. The Free State border on the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, North-West, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng Province and also shares a border with Lesotho.
The Free State Province disposes of an extensive system of parks and reserves, including one national park (Golden Gate) and more than 80 provincial, municipal, and privately owned nature parks, nature reserves, game reserves, and game farms. Activities include bird and game viewing, trophy and biltong hunting, hiking, horseback riding, biking, 4X4 off-road driving, camping, climbing and spelunking.
Besides the very attractive Golden Gate Highlands National Park, the game and nature reserves of Sterkfontein Dam, Willem Pretorius and Soetdoering are of particular interest. They are never as crowded as the big game parks in Mpumalanga or in KwaZulu-Natal. Another major destination in the Free State is the capital Bloemfontein which has a rich cultural offer.
The Gariep Dam is South Africa's largest and boasts some of the best watersports, yachting and fishing. Aviation facilities are superb, including two tarred & well maintained runways on an uncontrolled airport, with hangers available - a microlite & gyro paradise. Annually in December, the Dam hosts an international glider championship which attracts a worldwide attendance.
