Short description

With more than 30,000 farms – producing over 70% of the country's grain – on the vast plains of the Free State, the province is called South Africa's breadbasket. The Free State is a rural province and situated in the heart of South Africa's wide horizons and blue skies surrounded by neighboring provinces and the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. This region has been a bastion for Afrikaner nationalism and conservative culture since the establishment of the independent Republic of the Orange Free State back in the mid 1800s. The region is one of flat, rolling grassland and crop fields, rising to magnificent sandstone mountains in the northeast. The rich soil and pleasant climate allow for a thriving agricultural industry, while diamond and gold mining is its largest employer It is this expanse of rolling grassy hills and sandstone cliffs where the province’s main attraction lies. The Golden Gate Highlands National Park is full of fantastic hiking trails, caves filled with San rock art, roaming wildlife, and fresh mountain air, making it an ideal spot for those who enjoy the outdoors.
