City of Roses

You've now added Bloemfontein Zoo to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 8th (Sat): shop like a local with Langenhoven Park Farmers Market, then learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Bloemfontein Zoo, and then take in the exciting artwork at Gallery on Leviseur.

Rainbow Nation
The landscapes of South Africa match its people in terms of diversity, richness, and vitality. From desert lands and coastlines, to the famous nature reserves sheltering the "Big Five" game animals, the country has natural charm in spades. The main cities provide a wealth of bars, clubs, shopping districts, and entertainment options to please the most demanding visitors, while traditional life can still be admired and respected in a collection of villages with beehive-style huts and an age-old cultural heritage. When in need of a minute to digest all that's happened during your trip to South Africa, sit down to a braai (traditional barbecue), and a bottle of wine made at one of the country's thriving vineyards.
