In recent times, the most exciting development in the Lake Gariep region has been the renaissance of Bethulie's famous Royal Hotel. Founded in the 1880s, the Royal Hotel combines all that's best in traditional South African hospitality, with a keen understanding of modern needs. It's currently benefiting from a far-reaching makeover which has reinforced its reputation as 'the hotel that's better than home.' Bethulie is located just 90 minutes south of Bloemfontein in South Africa's Free State. It is six hours' drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, fivehours from Port Elizabeth and East London, eight hours from Durban and nine hours from Cape Town. That makes it the ideal accommodation stopover between South Africa's major cities; however it's also a worthwhile destination in its own right. En-suite convenience and enterprising cuisine, access to a huge private library and record collection, service standards modelled on an ocean liner's, a burgeoning 'Hall of Fame' honouring the town's best and bravest, Bethulie's Royal Hotel is an experience to savour and treasure. It's also the perfect base for exploration of South Africa's little-known hinterland and its neighbour, Lesotho. Accommodation at Bethulie's Royal Hotel ranges from tourist to first-class, and tariffs are calculated with an eye to value. Shops are located close by and secure parking, even for large vehicles, is available. The Royal Hotel welcomes well-behaved children and also makes special provision for pets, the physically challenged, and tour groups whether big or small. The longest road and rail bridge in Africa, a clutch of well-stocked game reserves and the scenic splendour of Lake Gariep, site of the most infamous concentration camp of the Anglo-Boer War, the childhood haunts of actor Patrick Mynhardt, who won fame as the 'Boy from Bethulie'; these are just a few of the points of interest that give Bethulie its broad-based appeal. The town retains a frontier feeling that conjures echoes of days long gone. For generations, its chief role has been to serve the needs of hard-working sheep farmers and their families in the surrounding district, but in addition Bethulie prides itself on being a safe, friendly and peaceful oasis, offering attractions and diversions that excite discerning visitors from all over the world.

Free State South Africa

Free State Hotel Accommodation

'The Free State landscape gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in, that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons.'  Nelson Mandela

The Free State is South Africa's Cinderella province. Every country has one - the place you make jokes about. You know what they're like ... 'first prize is a week's holiday in the Free State. Second prize is two weeks...' Well, as in most parts of the world, it's a bit mean and it's pretty uncalled for. OK - the Free State is landlocked so it doesn't have Cape Town's beaches, and its economy is based on large scale maize agriculture and mining, neither of which are particular decorative. However - it is seriously underrated.

The N1, which runs from Cape Town to Johannesburg and beyond runs right through the middle of the Free State and many people who've travelled along it at 120km/h, looking neither left nor right, can state with blissfully ignorant authority that 'there's nothing in the Free State'. Well, yeah - but head away from the N1 into the smaller towns and villages and you'll find lovely scenery and a host of cultural attractions, including some unusual museums, places of pilgrimage, and township tours. Even the rather dry industrial mining towns of the western part of the province have their attractions. As well as visiting a handful of museums and small nature reserves, you could do an underground mine tour and watch gold pouring.

There are lovely mountainous areas in the east, where the dramatic, concave sandstone cliffs and bright green rolling grasslands form the foothills of the Maluti Mountains and the Drakensberg. The main farming activity here is the growing of cherries, which tends to be a much prettier crop than maize. There is great hiking and mountain biking in the hills, and the scenery is awesome. The Golden Gate Highlands National Park, with its many day walks and hiking trails, pony trails, lovely rock art and small game, gets its name from the magnificent golden-hued sandstone cliffs. Adjacent to the park is the Basotho Cultural Village, which showcases both historical and contemporary aspects of the Sotho culture, which straddles both the Free State and the adjacent kingdom of Lesotho. Small towns, such as Clarens, are idyllic little hideaways with a significant population of artists, crafters and other rat-race refugees, and many lovely old houses are built from the glowing golden sandstone.

The Ash River, which tumbles into the eastern Free State from the mountains of Lesotho, has some of the most dependable white water rafting in South Africa. There is excellent fly fishing in the Eastern Highlands - both for trout and the far more interesting indigenous yellow fish, which is found in abundance in the huge Sterkfontein Dam. The small farming town of Marquard is the centre of the cherry growing area, and is a mountain biking destination of note. Every November in Ficksburg - another small farming town with pretensions to becoming a hip spot - throws a cherry festival. It's an excuse for the local people to see a few outsiders as the huge band of gypsy traders that travel from festival to festival turn up in force. You may - if you're lucky - even find a few cherries.

The northern boundary of the province is the Vaal River, which supports some fun rafting trips, particularly near the town of Parys. Parys, which is the Afrikaans version of Paris, is a great little town, with excellent coffee shops, loads of arty crafty outlets and - it must have something to do with the name - a good number of fashion designers. Close to Parys is the Vredefort Dome, which is South Africa's newest World Heritage Site. It's the site of an ancient meteorite impact, the scars of which are still discernable. As well as the spectacular, rather rugged terrain, which is as a result of the impact, attractions here include some small game farms, hiking trails and some pretty mean mountain biking trails.

Bloemfontein, the capital of the Free State, is a pleasant small city with lots of open space and some interesting museums. So there is loads to do in the Free State, but bear in mind that it's all pretty low key and laid back. This is still the agricultural heartland of South Africa - a place where things should not be rushed.
