Bus Hire Bloemfontein
Our country has three capitals – the other two being Cape Town, the legislative capital, and Pretoria, the administrative capital – but Bloemfontein is the judicial capital. Dutch for “fountain of flowers”, Bloemfontein is also the capital city of the Free State Province and is poetically referred to as “the city of roses” – probably due to the annual rose festival.
Our comprehensive bus charter Bloemfontein offering includes services for Conferences, Airport Transfers, Corporate Transfers and of course for domestic and international Tour Groups. The city’s Sesotho name is Mangaung, which means “place of cheetahs” and the local rugby sides takes that name when they play in the Super Rugby competition and the local Currie Cup.
The Free State lies in the centre of the country and this is the heart of the proud Afrikaans population. Despite sitting on the edge of the semi-arid Karoo region, this is farming country, and many of the nation’s great rugby and cricket stars were born here and attended one of the country’s top schools – Grey College.
CLOSE TO THE GARIEP DAM
Like so many of South Africa’s other cities, there is plenty to do – and the Gariep Dam in particular is popular with anglers and swimmers, great for water-skiing and yachting. Additionally, when inquiring about your bus charter Bloemfontein service, and if time permits be sure to include nearby destinations like Kimberley and Maseru, Lesotho, which is not too far from the “forgotten City.”
History buffs can enjoy the Anglo Boer War Museum (which also hosts a women’s memorial) and battlefields as well as a trip to the nearby Jagersfontein Mining Museum for a lesson about diamond history.
Why not head for a horse trail ride, skydive, take a trip to the Boyden Observatory for a spot of stargazing or get to stroke a cheetah at Bainsvlei’s Cheetah Experience? You can do it all in, or close by to Bloem – and our buses will take you there.
Afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon in the area, but before you know it, they’ve passed and the weather is back to the way it was – warm.
This is ideal weather for touring Bloemfontein by coach. With Kimberely being approximately 1 hour away, visiting the black hole is a great possibility while on your coach tour.
