If you’re looking for a formidable knowledge of the history of Clarens and surroundings Sethuthuthu Tours makes for an interesting tour.

The quaint town of Clarens is a great stop-off if you happen to be traveling from Gauteng or Kwa-Zulu Natal to the Cape and vice-versa.

Situated roughly three-hour’s drive from Johannesburg, in the embrace of the beautiful Maluti Mountain range, the charming town is known as the “Jewel” of the Free State and there’s so much more to it than its picturesque setting.

If you seek adventure on your vacation, Sethuthuthu Tours can arrange a wide variety of outdoor getaways to suit all. From their game viewing safaris of the ungainly grazers, the early Khoekoen called the Black Wildebeest “gnu” because of its cry (genu) which it bellows when alarmed.

On safari get to view these grazers that were once faced with extinction but are now off that danger list. They differ from the Blue Wildebeest by their long white tails and white manes.

Also visit Sethuthuthu Tours Wilderness area for a once in a lifetime adventure with tours to the Golden Gate (Qua Qua) National Park presented in a 4×4 game viewing vehicle by qualified guides. It’s breathtaking scenery and game and dinosaur fossils and footprints and Bushman paintings too.

Visitors are not only introduced to geology, anthropology, history and fauna and flora of the Eastern Free State.  But these tours offer edutainment as it’s education combined with fun and excitement too. Like try their ATV (Quad) tours offered in the Rooiberge Conservancy area, bordering Clarens.

Ride into the mountains, with quads that are easy to use and a guide that’s very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Although their quad rides are definitely not designed for those who like speed as you’ll notice in this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aeEueTcPiU.

But they’re great for the nature lover and families are welcome to try out the quad biking trip. Some of the sections are challenging but even a novice is able to negotiate them. There are many different tours to choose from, ranging from 90 minutes to a full day.  Meals and drinks are included in a full day trip.
