- Free State
Tweeling, meaning “twin” in Dutch and Afrikaans, is a small town situated 22km from Frankfort in the Free State province of South Africa just east of the Liebenbergsvlei River which acts as a conduit for the water from the Lesotho Highlands Water Project.
The town was established in 1920 on the two farms Tweelingspruit and Tweelingkop, their names taken from two similar looking hills just outside the town.
The adjacent african township is named Mafahlaneng, or "place of twins". This region of the highveld is colloquially known as the Riemland, recalling a time when it was a favoured hunting ground of the early pioneers.
