South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Accommodation – Self Catering
Category: Agritourism

Motivation for award: We have self catering cottages and a camping area in the mountainous area of a farm in the Eastern Free state, with several spectacular hiking trails, which is why I have made the category “Agri-tourism”, however it is also very ” Child Friendly”, with a playground for young children in a plantation, and is also a “Unique Experience” because there are very well defined dinosaur footprints a short hike from the accommodation. According to the Wits University Paleontology Department these footprints are the first evidence they have found that a large Theropod lived in this area.

Region: Free State / Highlands of the Eastern Free State
