Golden Gate: 26 December 2012

We arrived at another of our favourite South African wild places this morning: the Golden Gate Highlands National Park, located in the eastern Free State Province, where our base for the next three nights will be the charming Glen Reenen Rest Camp. Again we will give a proper report back soon, but for now we will try to post one or two pictures daily while we are here.

Today’s weather was overcast, rainy and cool but came sunset Golden Gate was lit in magnificently warm hues.

    Hi Dries, Marilize and Joubert, We hope you had a wonderful Christmas. So nice to see a beautiful image from the Vrystaat. Love the lack of motor cars on the road. Enjoy yourselves and we’re looking forward to seeing your pictures.

      Thank you Joey and Marks! We had a joyful Christmas Day and hope you can say the same?

      Golden Gate goes against every preconception people have about the Free State being flat, featureless and boring – you’d be getting stunning images here!

      Haak Vrystaaaaaaat!!!!!!!

        Thank you Dries and Marilize. We had a lovely quiet Christmas. We lazed around which is totally unlike us. Nice for a change though. Yes, Golden Gate does take away that misconception that Vrystaat is flat and featureless. Wish we were there to capture some of those wonderful images. Enjoy yourselves.

        Marks and Joey
