Fouriesburg Verblyf

Fouriesburg is a small border town nestled in the highlands of the eastern Free State. It lies under the Maluti Mountains, a physical barrier between South Africa and Lesotho. The town is just 9 kilometres from the official South Africa - Lesotho immigration post.

Fouriesburg was established on the farm of Groenfontein in 1892 and was later declared the capital of the then Orange Free State Republic during the Anglo-Boer War. The war is an important part of the town's history and it has witnessed many battles, one of which nearly destroyed the town completely. The town is named after the owner of the original farm, Christoffel Fourie.

Contrary to its history, Fouriesburg today is known as a particularly quiet, peaceful neck of the woods. It is inhabited mostly by a relaxed farming community that cultivates things like cherries, sunflowers and corn among others. Some farms in the area offer tours to curious visitors can get a glimpse of how a working farm operates.

Being at the base of a large mountain range means that outdoor activities are in no short supply. There are the obvious choices of mountain biking and hiking on offer, but one can also try one of the 4x4 routes or go for a long horse-ride, which is undoubtedly a good way to get in touch with nature.

In the lower reaches of the mountain slopes there are numerous sites of interest, from ancient overhangs now used for fertility rituals to examples of San rock paintings. There are also memorials to fallen Anglo-Boer War soldiers and the Golden Gate National Park nearby.

Fouriesburg is easily accessible from some of the largest cities, including Durban, Bloemfontein and Johannesburg, all of which are less than 400 kilometres away. The tiny artistic hub of Clarens is only 35 kilometres away.
