This place offers great views of Bloemfontein. We managed to enter just before sunrise, security allowed us through. So saw sunrise and then went to check out the statue of Nelson Mandela that overlooks Bloemfontein for the East. And then there is some wildlife too....More

My wife and I visited Bloemfontein for a wedding and stayed near Naval Hill. We went to Naval Hill and took quite a lot of photos and enjoyed the view. We also saw some Zebras, giraffes and blue wildebeests.

Loved going to the Naval Hill pity the restaurant was either closed or no longer in service when we arrived.

Ran the much earlier Naval Hill parkrun. Worth the scenery and serious cardio awaiting anyone who parks their car at the bottom of the hill. I was yet to participate in a parkrun that had post activities. Here there are. Fun and motivational.

When you reach the top of Naval Hill, you have the nice view of Bloemfontein Town and allowed you to enjoy the beauty of its landscape.
