Tweeling is a small town situated in the Northern Free State, 22 km from Frankfort. The town was laid out in 1920 on two farms named Tweelingspruit and Tweelingkop. The name Tweeling is Afrikaans for “twins” and the town’s name was derived from two hillocks which were similar in appearance.
Tweeling is situated just east of the Liebenbergsvlei River which is a conduit for water from the Lesotho Highlands Water Project. The majority of its residents speak the Sotho language.
This picturesque town offers many outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy. The Gelofte Festival Area is a definite must-see for history enthusiasts. The area was laid out by Rapportryers, an Afrikaans organisation, and served as the official Great Trek festival site.
