Clarens Town of Eastern Free State

A visual hub of artistic beauty - Clarens has something for everyone from golf, quad biking, extreme adventures and hiking, scenic landscapes, quaint shops, excellent restaurants and glorious weather.

Fouriesburg Town of Eastern Free State

- Nee, geen diesel! Die Plaas Stoep se kos is uit die boekke, lekker kuierplek. Vriendelike mense, maar nie veel meer te doen as om oor te slaap en die buurdorpe (en Lesotho) te besoek nie

Langenhoven Park Suburb of Bloemfontein

Close to Bloemfontein - Out of town, but close enough to the business centre and main shopping centres. Really enjoyed the steakhouse/grill near the Total.

Fouriesburg Town of Eastern Free State

Looks run down - Not great - only one place to get Diesel and people parked in front of that went into the Co-op - could not get to it. The other station there was no Diesel available. Did not really like Fouriesburg as a town looked like it needed some TLC.
