Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestles near the Lesotho border in the Orange Free State of South Africa. Incredible sandstone cliffs shimmer with hues of orange, brown, and yellow when the rays of the sun hit the mountains just right. It is a sight to behold, enticing people from around the world to experience this beauty for themselves. Incredibly, these sandstone cliffs are where 200 million-year-old dinosaur eggs were found – the oldest known find on earth.

But the sandstone cliffs are not all that the Golden Gate Highlands National Park has to offer. This park which won the award for the park of the year in 2016, is an incredible place to immerse in nature and explore the outdoors. It is also one of the very few parks in South Africa where walks can be taken alone. You are most likely to see large herds of zebra, antelope, and even wild horses on walks, drives, and horse riding excursions.
