Bloemfontein

City of Roses

Poetically hailed as the "city of roses" and the birthplace of J. R. R. Tolkien, Bloemfontein blends a variety of African and European cultures, creating an environment suited for both business and leisure.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Anglo Boer War Museum and The National Museum. Let the collections at Oliewenhuis Art Museum and Naval Hill Planetarium capture your imagination. Explore Bloemfontein's surroundings by going to Kimberley (Kimberley Mine Museum, The Big Hole, &more). And it doesn't end there: get great views at Naval Hill, stroll through Zanchieta Lodge and Wild Cat Reserve, buy something for everyone on your list at Loch Logan Waterfront, and take in nature's colorful creations at Free State National Botanical Garden.
