Before you visit Bloemfontein, make sure to brush up your dancing skills, as Bloemfontein is the city with an African rhythm.
After a breakfast in one of the city's many fine resorts, most of which are situated just few kilometres from its centre, you can take a short drive into the heart of the city. People from the area christened it ‘the city of roses' for reasons which are abundantly clear when you see the breathtaking flowers that add colour to its streets.
For those of you who are so inclined, you can spend a few hours indulging in retail therapy in some of the city's most renowned shopping complexes, including the Northridge Mall, Loch Logan Mall and Mimosa Mall.
The evening is the perfect time to visit cultural hotspots like the Sand du Plesis Theatre - which is the main tourist attraction in the area, providing a range of entertainments.
The relaxed pace of the day is replaced by a more exciting and heady combination of dancing and socialising as night falls. Bloemfontein then comes to life, and the African rhythm which permeates the air becomes ever more intoxicating.
The choice of destination is vast, but you should try to experience the Oolong Lounge, which offers great music and fabulous dancing; but if this isn't your scene, try the very popular Cuban Lounge or take a short trip into the next town to check out places like the Mojaba Tavern and Ekhaveni.
To recover from a long night of partying, use your time in Bloemfontein the following morning to breathe some fresh air. Drive to neighbouring Lesotho, where amongst other things you can visit the acclaimed Lesotho Mountain Kingdom.
However don't allow this guide to limit you, there is so much to discover about this fantastic city. Let the spirited nature of the area and its people influence you and explore. Forty eight hours just isn't long enough to truly do this beautiful place justice, but it's well worth trying to do as much as you can.
