Golden Gate – Highlands National Park

Golden Gate Highlands National Park lies nestled in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains. Highlands Mountain Retreat is a luxury camp in Golden Gate Highlands National Park. This retreat consists of eight log cabins nestled in the mountains.

Highlands Mountain Retreat allows one to take in the awesome view of the overlapping mountain range, all the while knowing that you are standing 2200m above sea-level. This is one of the few places in South Africa at this height. A great escape for the mind, body, and soul.
