Take a sho't left with Azania Mosaka and South African Tourism

Azania takes an epic Sho't Left to the City of Roses

South Africa is filled with a variety of majestic sights to see and beautiful hidden gems to explore. From the hills and valleys of KwaZuluNatal to the golden sandy beaches of the Eastern Cape, we had tons of calls coming in with holiday destinations that Azania should discover.

Bloemfontein stole Azas's heart this past weekend as she took an epic Sho't Left with SA tourism to experience what this beauty that lies in the Free State has to offer.

It's always been one of the cities that I've only ever passed through. Never stayed to enjoy whatever the delights are, and we got to discover that this past weekend.

The trip kicked off with some fine dining at one of Bloem's largest and popular restaurant's New York. Food is probably one of the most important things that can make or break your trip and the capital of the Free State did not disappoint throughout the weekend.

The food in Bloemfontein is authentic South African food. People in Bloem celebrate putting out food. From fresh oysters to salads, the quality of ingredients has been good and absolutely delicious.

After a good night's rest it was time to delve deep into what the city has to offer. With the help of Dr John Hattingh, a Tourism and Event Management lecturer at the Central University of Technology, Aza had a front row seat to the history and fascinating stories of Bloemfontein.

The city tour included visits to the National Women’s Memorial and War Museum, Naval Hill - where the famous statue of Nelson Mandela stands, and Oliewenhuis Art Gallery which exhibits some amazing artworks in one of the most magnificent gardens in the city of roses.

It was quite a revelation. Bloemfontein is quite rich in historic sites and beautiful architecture

After the incredible cultural experience it was time for some adrenaline pumping fun. Bloemfontein is also known to have quite a number of adventure spots that will give you a rush of excitement. Aza let her inner-child take over as she enjoyed some paint-balling, go-karting and even tried her hand at a bit of table tennis.

The entire trip was jam packed with as many activities as possible to ensure that Aza gets the full Bloemfontein experience. Her final stop was filled with peace and serenity at De Oude Kraal Country Estate and Spa which was the perfect way to wind down and take in all the magic that filled her Sho't Left to the City of Roses.

Bloemfontein has it all - the history, art, culture, adventure and relaxation.
