Hertz Car Hire Bloemfontein Airport – Things to do and see in Bloemfontein
Bloemfontein is the sixth largest city in South Africa situated approximately 400 Kilometres south of Johannesburg and approximately 1000 Kilometres north of Cape Town.
Following the Battle of Paardeberg during the Anglo-Boer War (in 1900) British forces captured the city and built a concentration camp nearby to house Boer women and children. Today the National Women’s Memorial on the outskirts of Bloemfontein pays homage to those that died in the concentration camps during the war in South Africa. Emily Hobhouse (9 April 1860 – 8 June 1926) is remembered here with the Woman’s Memorial. Hobhouse fought relentlessly with the British Government for the women and children to improve their condition and reduce disease.
Emily Hobhouse returned to Britain to gain support and inform the British Public what was happening in these camps. The largest fire service museum in South Africa is situated at the Ehrlich Park fire station in Bloemfontein. If you are in Bloemfontein it may be a great idea to visit the museum. Nothing better than seeing some of those big Red Fire Engines that little boys dream of!
Bloemfontein Airport was renamed by the President on South Africa on 13 December 2012 at an historic event held at the airport to become known as Bram Fischer International Airport.
