Despite its proximity to major urban areas Bapsfontein maintains a rural village lifestyle.

The town is surrounded by rolling grasslands and the region is a fertile farming area. Various crops and vegetables are grown.

The grasslands and many rivers, streams and pans make for good bird-watching and birders are regular visitors to the area. It is also popular for horse-riding.

There are a number of farms near Bapsfontein that offer various types of accommodation.

Many people remember the old Bapsfontein Hotel with great fondness as it was a centre point for Country and Western Music, dances and much more.
