To drive from the east to the west is only 12 kilometers on the main streets. In peak traffic, this is a 30-minute drive.

There is less stress than in the bigger cities of South Africa, and everything seems to move just a bit slower here.

There is a saying about Bloemfontein “You cry when you arrive, and you cry when you have to leave.” Many people cry for different reasons upon arrival, but those who cry when they leave do so because they have grown to love the place.
