This massive repository of the written word in the Afrikaner culture could have been only book-based and consequently dry as proverbial dust - but not so! What the curators have done is present a user friendly glimpse into the lives of the literary greats, using a variety of items, such as press cuttings, published articles, personal effects such as exercise books, as well as re-creating the study or personal work space of many of the authors.A must visit to literature lovers #wintergetaway

The Gallery has a new exhibition every month. The artwork is upmarket and classy, yet affordable. We were there for the opening of the Rudolph Pretorius Solo Exhibition, and wow, it was great. The art is professional and they try to host only the best artist. Definitly the place for art connoisseurs. #wintergetaway

Quite an attractive course to play, lots of trees and greenery. Substantially shorter and therefore easier than its neighbour Bloemfontein Golf Course.Very cheap to play golf #wintergetaway

What an emotional visit! The entire experience was so incredibly heartbreaking but so worth the visit. I was blown away by the history, that humans could be so cruel,that others could be so steadfast and determined. The history as it is never told. I highly recommend this but take tissues! #wintergetaway
