Clarens and the Eastern Free State
The picturesque Eastern Free State town of Clarens is situated at the foot of Mount Horeb. It is surrounded by the beautiful Rooiberge, with the mighty Maluti’s off to the south-east. Autumn and spring are a good time of the year to visit. The tree-filled town offers a wonderful display of colourful blossoms in spring time, and surrounding mountains a green wonderland with the fresh light green willows. In the autumn, shades of the oranges, red and rustic brown of the Lombardy poplars is an unforgettable sight showcasing why the town is known as the ‘jewel’ of the Free State.
