6 Things To Do In Bloemfontein for Under R50

Bloemfontein, also known as ‘The City of Roses’, is one of South Africa’s three capital cities – the Judicial Capital. It is located right in the middle of the country and is rich in South African cultural history, from the Anglo Boer War to the birthplace of the ANC.

It’s fair to say that a trip to ‘Bloem’ is a must if you want to experience a real taste of South Africa and delve into its cultural heritage and diversity.  It is also the capital of the Free State, the home to the Toyota Cheetahs Rugby team, and the University of the Free State (UFS).

Located as it is in central South Africa, it has excellent transport links to all corners of the country. It is directly on the N1 route which is the national highway that links the very top of South Africa to the very bottom – Cape Town and is the perfect place to stop-over on your journey. The Bram Fischer airport offers a large selection of domestic and regional flights to most of the major airports in the country. To take advantage of the many flight deals available to get you to Bloem, whether for business or pleasure, you must check out the Cheapflights website.

I was asked to write a sponsored post for the Cheapflights website to be featured in their Cheap & Free blog category. This was perfect for me as I live close to Bloem and have visited it many times both for business, pleasure and of course … shopping! In this post I have listed the top 6 things to do in Bloem for under R50! Yes, R50! A fantastic list of activities, especially for families!

Please do check out the link for ideas on what to do, where to go, and a taste of what Bloemfontein has to offer. I wasn’t joking about the historical importance of the city – the museums, monuments and art galleries are endless.

School Holiday Plans

The first term of the South African school year is nearly over. It feels like just the other day they went back after a seven week holiday. Fortunately this holiday is only two and a half weeks long so we should just about get through it with my sanity still intact.

School holidays are great, the break in the routine is good for the kids and for me, but lets face it, after the first few days it can get a bit boring. I’ve been trying to come up with a few ideas and a rough plan of attack, things we can do to look forward to and to keep busy. Continue reading “School Holiday Plans”
