About Highlands Mountain Retreat Golden Gate Park SANParks

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Maluti Mountains of the north eastern Free State lies the Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

Highlands Mountain Retreat is the perfect getaway for visitors craving a secluded setting. The wooden cabins, tucked into the mountainside, offer unbelievable vistas of the surrounding Maluti's, that seem to stretch as far as the eye can see.

A great escape for the mind, body and soul... Highlands Mountain Retreat, is a luxury camp that is home to eight log cabins. These excellent wooden log cabins, 2200 m above sea level, ensures visitors a striking view of the surrounding Malutis, one that cannot be matched from any of the other accommodation options.

Calmness, peaceful, isolated...exactly what you'll be getting from these eight perfect-for-winter spacious log cabins, seeing as they were designed to retain warmth during the chilling season, but also allow coolness during the summer months.

PLEASE NOTE: the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Quotes will include the 1% Community Levy, but will exclude daily conservation fees, which are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.

All we can say is WOW! What a wonderful experience!

Went there for a weekend, absolutely loved it, was more than we expected. The cabins are geared for the winter, and the fireplace created such a cosy atmosphere.I can suggest it to anyone, and will definitely be returning.

Waking up and see The Best View ever is what the retreat is all about.Absolutely must do again.But also some negatives....- Even in November the cabin is cold- Not enough light in the kitchen to really see what you are cooking.
