Member summary

Tswelopele, meaning “progress” in Setswana, is a small, serene village amongst rolling hills in the Free State, South Africa. Here, nature is abound, and rondavel huts that sit among the grasslands and savannahs serve as home to close-knit communities who are known for their friendliness. Around 47% of the municipality area has remained as natural habitat, and there are two land-based protected areas: the Bloemhof Dam Nature Reserve and the Sandveld Nature Reserve, making Tswelopele a must-visit.
