Its fantastic. Great location and well run. We camped there over Dec\Jan a few years ago and returned to KZN via Lesotho. The kids and family loved it. Lots to do in the surrounding area.

I was there last week till Wednesday this week. (Stayed in the PH in Clarens.

Park and scenery awsome but I did not see one single truck !!.

I drove through the camping place which is opposite the road and the park office.

Looks clean and shady.

There are some picnic places between Clarens and the office in the park which  charge a conservation fee of R 36,- p.p. per day (if you are Sa resident)--so, bring your wild card along.

The fee also applies, should you deviate from the main (through) road and drive the various loops etc.

Just park furthest away from the road. Little spade for rain water. Great area.

Great Park with lots of walks in the Mountains and Clarens which is a great town for shopping and eating nearby. Awesome views etc.. really great and peaceful place. Try and get a site furtherest from the road and next to the stream. All ablutions are clean and fairly new.

Hi Peter, welcome to this forum!
It needs to be said that Daan and I prefer it ROUGH!
GGHNP is one of our very favourites. We were there again in Dec 2013 - depending on your requirements - it has no flashy facilities for bored children (city like entertainment) it hardly has mobile signal.
You can stay there for 2 weeks and there is more than one walk to go on every day. The many drives / walks are not long and difficult.
To the east is the Basotho cultural village, Kestell, Harrismith, Sterkfontein and even Little Switzerland is within reach for a day trip.
To the west are places like Fouriesburg, Caledonspoort, Ficksburg and of course Lesotho!

BOOKING MIGHT BE CRUCIAL as regulars take up some of the nicer spots on arrival! You cannot book a specific spot. ALWAYS take warm clothes!
Daan & Ilze (Varkie)

Dit is 'n gereelde kuier plek vir ons, staan normaalweg so 2-3 dae (kom al daar van kinder dae af). Jy kan vir twee weke staan om alles te sien
Kamp plek is netjies en ablusie blokke goed.
Stel voor jy bespreek lank voor die tyd.
Meeste kamp plekke het 220V maar daar is klompie sonder krag.
Vat braai ding saam, hulle sin is maar swak en party plekke het nie.
Van warm en koel klere saam, die weer kan vinnig draai.
Verskeie besiens waardighede in die omgewing: Stap roetes (Brandwag, Woodhose, Holkrans ens), Basoetoe village, Clarens (art cafe), Sterkfontien dam se uit loop tonnel, Lesotho (Katsedam), Fouriesburg, Chatau Lodge (wit leeus - skakel eers), agterpad Kestel toe, Witsieshoek (lekker kos), slefs 4 x 4 roete. Gaan kyk op die internet vir nog.
Geen moderne vermaak.
Maak seker as julle gaan stap vir water, peusel goed en warm ding (verkieslik water weerend)
Die wiele is rond so hulle moet hardloop.
Nou is ons afgetree en kamp net

Best route from Gauten to Golden Gate?
Africa is not for sissies. Die bosveld is nie speletjies nie.
