"The Free State landscape gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in, that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons.” - former President Nelson Mandela wrote in his autobiography. It is here where Basotho Cultural Village Rest Camp nestles on the eastern side of the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. The camp resembles an 18th century Basotho Village. The surroundings take you back from the pathway of previous times to modern days. The Basotho lifestyle, architecture and hospitality are the order of the day. The Camp offers comfortable self-catering accommodation with splendid views. The Camp has communal braai facilities, and also private Webber braai facilities for every chalet. Come stay, dance, sip traditional beer, consult the Ngaka (traditional healer) and come to Lekhotla (the gathering place for men).
