We did a 14km hike through the Golden Gate National Park. We experienced four seasons in one walk. It was so beautiful and very physically challenging. Definitely not for the faint hearted. Really worth every minute.

This place have limited value when it comes to game drive, but where it shines is if you like walking and seeing great natural formations. Would recommend this place to anyone that enjoy a nature walk.

We stayed at the camp rest stop and were very impressed with the facilities and proximity to the hiking trails. The two driving loops are also very scenic.
