Zastron Town of Xhariep Region

Zastron Review - Zastron is not a town for shopping mall addicts, it is really there to service the local community. However it is the only base for people who want to enjoy the country-side of the SW Free State with some stunning mountain scenery close by.

Smithfield Town of Transgariep and Goldfields

Smithfield, it's odd - in a good way - Smithfield is self-consciously quirky which is why it is an intersting place to visit. Several strange B&Bs and peculiar architecture. It is a pity they did not make more of their UFO research institute.
