Area Information:

As one reaches Thaba 'Nchu, 65 kilometres east of Bloemfontein and one of the oldest settlements in the Free State, it becomes fairly obvious where it got its name. The mountain that looms over the town of Botshabelo often falls into shadow whereupon it becomes a BLACK MOUNTAIN or Thaba'Nchu, as the Tswana name translates.

The N8 between Bloemfontein and the Lesotho border conveniently passes through the southern parts of the town, which makes it easy to reach, and it is fairly popular with Bloemfontein residents head, who head out here over weekends to the Thaba'Nchu Sun Casino resort, where there is a casino, resort and an adjacent game farm that provide hours of entertainment.

There is little else out here, other than the grave of Chief Moroko, the founder of the Sotho nation and a friend of the Voortrekkers, and a farm called Marseilles, which used to belong to a Lady Mary Grosvenor (she and her family also owned most of London), who only stayed here roughly once a year. But it is principally the resort and the game farm that draw people, that and the immediate sense of wide skies and open country so close to a city centre

Attractions:

The Maria Moroka Nature Reserve was declared in 1982 and all buildings and fences cleared by 1985. An area of + 6000 hectares is enclosed by nearly 30 km of fencing making it home to Rhino, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Zebra, Jackal and a host of different antelope species as well as abundance of bird life. The grassland area provides grazing whilst the trees and bushes provide food and protection. The Groothoek Dam and pools provides drinking water through the dry winter months and is home to many species of fish and otters, but no crocodiles or hippo.

One of the unique features of this reserve is the Thaba 'Nchu Mountain meaning â??Black Mountainâ?? (2138 m) in the north and Groothoek Dam which lies at the southern point of the natural amphitheatre formed by surrounding hills. Variety of grass, flowers, shrubs, succulents and trees are to be found in this combination of vegetation types, which are an exception to the common vegetation of the region.
