About Glen Reenen Rest Camp Golden Gate Highlands SANParks

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Maluti Mountains of the north eastern Free State lies the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. Mild highveld summers with the possibility of thunderstorms in the afternoon and cold winters with occasional snow transforming the park into a white wonderland.

The Glen Reenen Rest Camp is situated close to the Golden Gate Hotel & Chalets and offers rondavels, longdavels and guest cottages. For nature lovers who prefer to get a bit closer to the natural environment, caravan and camping sites are also on the list.

Activities available at Golden Gate Highlands National Park include abseiling, canoeing, game drives, hiking and nature walks, horse riding, and swimming.

Other useful information at this rest camp:

- Pets are not allowed.

- As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.

I stayed at Glen Reenen for quite a few times and will do so in future. I love the trails the view the cleanliness of everything the friendly staff and the good service. I know COVID had a inpack on everything but the kiosk needs a little attention. The markings on the trails need attention a specially for the first time visitors.

Loved the peace. The personel can be more friendly and helpful. The premises looks untidy.

The trails can be marked more clearly. The paint has been faded. Also on the trails there need to be some kind of markers. Thanks a lot that you keep the trails so maintained.
