                                  We will definitely stay over at Pitch-Up SA again. The accommodation is basic, safe and very neat. The owners are extremely helpful and the service is great.

                                  Bethulie is a quaint little Free-State town, and Pitch-Up is a great budget-friendly self-catering base to explore it from.  We stayed in the "Guineafowl" unit, and the rooms were clean and comfy, and the kitchen well-stocked with utensils and so on.  The camp site also looked great, with a neat kitchen/lounge unit alongside.The owners are friendly and helpful, and Huntley has a fantastic knowledge of the history of the area, which he is more than willing to share - he took us on some interesting drives to show us the sights.  A bonus is that Pitch-Up is on the edge of town, and a close drive...
