I am going to catch a train back to Johannesburg around 4am in the morning from Bloemfontein and plan to catch up a a bit of sleep from the night before INSIDE the Bloemfontein railway station.
Is the station safe enough to be inside overnight?
I will be coming to Bloemfontein for the very first time for Christmas holidays and would like to know which places are a must to see whilst there to enjoy my stay?
We are a party of eight (two sprightly couples in their 70s plus a family of four with kids aged 8 and 5) looking for two nights accommodation in or around Bloem for the nights of 5th and 6th January 2012, which is proving to be surprisingly hard to find.
Ideally we would prefer self catering, but otherwise affordable B&B or family-friendly hotel accommodation would be fine. We have our own transport, so we don't necessarily need to be in the city - we would also consider something in the Kimberly vicinity, although this wouldn't be first choice.
When last did you go to the Bloemfontein Waterfront my friend?
