Free State

IMAGES OF VAST FIELDS OF YELLOW SUNFLOWERS AND ENDLESS MIELIE PLANTATIONS CREATE A COLOURFUL PATCHWORK ACROSS THE ENORMOUS CENTRAL PLATEAU OF THE FREE STATE. PREDOMINANTLY FARMLAND, THE FREE STATE IS HOWEVER, ALSO ENDOWNED WITH GOLD MINES. A MASSIVE LAYER OF SANDSTONE, STRETCHING ALONG THE EASTERN FREE STATE BORDER WITH LESOTHO, HAS BEEN FASHIONED BY ELEMENTS THROUGH THE AGES IN UNIQUE, FLAT TOPPED ROCK FORMATIONS. THIS EXQUISITE LANDSCAPE OF CLIFFS AND ROUNDED HILLS KNOWN AS "KOPPIES" (HEADS) GLOWS WITH BRILLIANT REDS, ORANGES AND GOLDEN YELLOWS IN THE LATE AFTERNOON SUNLIGHT. THE GOLDEN GATE HIGHLANDS NATIONAL PARK IS A MASTERPIECE OF VAST GRASSLAND AND WEATHERED ROCK, AND IS THE HOME OF MANY ELAND, HARTEBEEST AND SPRINGBOK AS WELL AS A VARIETY OF BIRDS.
