Love the sandstone cliffs and beautiful backdrop of Drankensberg mountains.
Wildlife is not often seen after the fences have been lifted.

The beauty of this park lies mainly in its scenery. The road to the park from Johannesburg is very scenic and the adjacent game reserve has antelope species and good bird life.

The mountain vistas are spectacular, the colour of the rock and rock formations are all unusual. The little town of Clarens is a haven at the start.

Golden Gate is one of the most beautiful places in South Africa, and is definitely worth seeing if you can make it there. The mountains are majestic and the grasslands are full of life.

No important wild life present and scenic not that interesting after you've done Royal Natal national park. But when passing thru worth a short 1 day stay and do some short hikes.
