Philippolis is a small town in the Free State province of South Africa. The writer and intellectual Sir Laurens van der Post was born here. As of 2014 the town has started to become a popular tourist-destination because of its historical value, architecture and rural lifestyle.

The town of Philippolis lies 60 kilometres from the Gariep Dam and 180 kilometres from Bloemfontein in the flat grassland prairie characteristic of this section of the Free State.

For the outdoor enthusiast and nature lover, Philippolis offers 4X4 Routes and hiking trails and Gariep Dam and Nature Reserve offers water sports and game viewing.

Philippolis is so peaceful that it really deserves more attention than merely being used as a stopover, and those who can spare a couple of days – or weeks – to linger will truly be rewarded. Visit the Van der Post Memorial Centre, the weaving school museum, or do a town walk, birdwatching trip or safari.
