Bloemfontein is one of South Africa’s three national capitals and is regarded as the “City of Roses” because of the abundance of wild roses that grow throughout the city. There is even an annual rose festival to celebrate these beautiful flowers. With lovely streets, malls, and restaurants you won’t have a problem finding things to do in Bloemfontein during your visit.
Bloemfontein is not only a prime holiday destination but also a popular place for backpackers who want to traverse the city. There are excellent accommodations for backpackers across the city including hostels and other low-cost inns and bed-and-breakfasts.
The Bloemfontein Zoo is also another popular place to visit, especially because of the historic 1930s Liger, a cross between a lion and a tiger, which has been stuffed and is still on display as the largest species of cat in the world.
Finally, the Bloemfontein Golf Club has impressive grounds and is the perfect spot to enjoy a cool cocktail and some leisure rounds of golf.
For a relaxing getaway, book yourself a massage at the Bloemfontein Spa which has excellent service and a calming environment. This is a great way to ease your tired feet and weary body from a whole day of sightseeing and touring.
Just outside of the city, there is a huge luxury hotel and casino complex that is a great escape for those who want to have a night or weekend out.
