Focus on Kroonstad, Free State, South Africa
The neat pleasant town of Kroonstad, the third-largest town in the Free State, lies two hours drive from Gauteng, making its position on the map as important as in the agricultural economy it supports.
Folklore has it that the town was named for a horse, belonging to Voortrekker Sarel Cilliers, which drowned in a stream on the site of the present town. A caravan park and many more camp sites on the banks of the willow-lined Vals River are frequented by anglers and watersport enthusiasts.
