Adventures in and around Bloemfontein
Bloemfontein is fairly flat and boasts excellent weather, so it’s no wonder thrill-seekers make the most of its adventure activities. Whether you’re into hiking, skydiving, watersports or 4×4 trails, there’s an itinerary for you.
The Clarens Golf Estate
The classic risk-and-reward design of the course at the Clarens Golf Estate in the Free State allows for a highly memorable experience … as much for the challenge of each hole as for the sparkling waters and golden mountains that frame the layout.
Franklin Game Reserve
The Franklin Game Reserve is a unique 250-hectare wildlife reserve in the heart of Bloemfontein. If you would like to experience wildlife in Bloemfontein head for the Franklin Game Reserve in the heart of the city. Established in 1930, it is one of only two city wildlife reserves in the world. The other is in Hong Kong. Infused with the history of the struggle against apartheid and abuzz with the energy of the city of gold, Soweto is a must-see for tourists who are looking for more than sun, sea and the big five.
