Let nature come to you at Glen Reenen

Glen Reenen Rest Camp is one of our favoured options for an overnight stay when visiting Golden Gate Highlands National Park. The camp has an amazing setting surrounded by the magnificent mountains, with two crystal clear mountain streams flowing past and converging at one end, and is frequented by an equally impressive diversity of wildlife – we showed you the antics of the baboons yesterday, as well as the ground woodpeckers that call Glen Reenen home – just one of many kinds of birds that you’ll find there, and at night you may be lucky to see a jackal or various kinds of antelope roaming between the huts and campsites. It is also a fantastic base from which to explore the Park, be it on foot, horseback or in your own vehicle.

Glen Reenen, and Golden Gate Highlands National Park, is managed by the South African National Parks and is an easy 350 to 400km drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Our new favourite route to Golden Gate, via Sasolburg, Heilbron, Petrus Steyn and Bethlehem, a distance of about 400km from Pretoria (map drawn with Google Maps)

    Hope you are all well! Only just came back from summer break, and already enjoying reading and catching up on your lovely posts; you have been very active! The Indian Myna birds are regarded a major pest in the Eastern States, and get trapped and euthanised regularly – same in SA?

      Welcome back, Maurice! Hope you had a wonderful time!

      Indeed, the myna’s are a serious pest here as well, but unfortunately their eradication is not pursued with the same vigour….
