If you're not quite convinced where to stay in Bloemfontein, try the Naledi Sun Hotel, less than an hour's drive away. Try your luck at the slots in the casino, head on over to the Ipeleng Lounge Bar inside the Kika Restaurant for dinner and a drink, and then settle in for a comfortable stay in the guest rooms.
As far as attractions go in Thaba Nchu, also called "Black Mountain", soak up culture of the Tswana and Sotho-speaking locals, or visit the nearby Maria Moroka Game Reserve, where photograpers will delight in the herds of springbok and zebra that come to drink from the water's edge at Moutloatse Setlogelo Dam. Thaba Nchu is also in the vicinity of the Free State birding route.
Whatever your reason for passing through, you'll find plenty of things to do in Bloemfontein during your stayover at Sun International's Windmill Casino and Naledi Sun Hotel.
