Ladybrand Town of Free State

What a beautiful town - You can't see it from the main road. Hidden against the hill side, but what a wonderful surprise! Clean and tidy with roads that are well maintained. It offers a range of shops that you would expect to find in larger towns. The sandstone buildings, particularly the high school is a must see. It is a good place to stop on your long journey and spend some time.

Parys Town of Northern Free State

I love Parys in the Spring time! - Love, love Parys. It is a very quaint little town with great restaurants and challenging golf courses. Ruby's is a fantastic restaurant - the best bread we have ever tasted and great food as well! This is a good destination for a golf tour. It's got everything you need.
