Ficksburg, Free State, South Africa
Ficksburg was proclaimed in 1867 and is situated along the Highlands Route in the Eastern Free State. Ficksburg history is indeed a fascinating history, dating back to the time the ancient San people roamed the area, as well as the black people, the Voortrekkers and the European settlers.
Today Ficksburg is an agricultural haven, and is the gateway to Lesotho. It is nestled at the foot of the Imperani Mountain and along the banks of the Caledon River. Summer is balmy and pleasant, while winter affords beautiful snow covered mountains.
