Wow, stunning sandstone beauty within walking distance, surrounded by majestic mountains. Lovely climbs, freezing in winter (like in frost and snow)

Between the majestic Drakensberg mountains lies this jewel, with beautiful sandstone formations and easy accesible to everyone, old and young. A great place

Fantastic scenery but generally not the place to seen game. Baboon, Zebra, Widebeest, Eland and others may be found.

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.

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.

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.
