Discover the Beauty of the South Free State

The Free state with its beautiful yellow grasslands, crop fields and sandstone mountains has a special attraction of its own as well as a special place in my heart.   It is a Province in the middle of South Africa with the city Bloemfontein as its capital. What I particular love about this province is what is known as the Friendly N6 Route, which covers the area from Bloemfontein to Aliwal North.   Along this route you will encounter South African hospitality at its best.   Driving on the N6 through Reddersburg, Smithfield and Rouxville will give you a taste of South African countryside where cattle might still cross the road and the possibility exists that you might encounter a donkey car in the middle of town.   The people are friendly and love to share their tales to strangers.    There are several cosy break and breakfast accommodation   available along the route where you can be treated to traditional farm-style food.
