Mt. Sanctuary Park is in a beautiful setting with lovely hikes and rock pools. The gorge is nice to walk through. Amenities are satisfactory with places to charge phones. Some camp sites have electricity. The kids love going camping there.

Mountain Sanctuary Park is an institution for Joburg and Pretoria residents. I've been visiting it for over 30 years, probably a hundred times, and while the facilities have been upgraded over that time, the tranquillity and beauty of the place has never changed. It is...More
