Golden Gate National Park is based in the northern reaches of the Drakensberg mountain range and the Maluti mountains and is a great destination for hiking amongst high sandstone rock formations. The park contains wildlife found in the mountains of South Africa. A visit from here to the Drakensberg mountain resorts is also possible.

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.

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

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