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.

We booked this lovely place as the highlight of our holidays in the north/east part of Leshoto. Everything looked perfect until we got there and that the cleaning ladies told us we had to get the keys from the main reception that is about 20min drive away... Once there, we were told that there was an electricity issue on the facility and that we would be given another chalet. That "other chalet" was actually in the valley near the main road, in the Golden Gate hotel site. It was not a bad chalet, but it was definitely far from what we expected in term of both location and size/equipment. We...

Great experience, only let down was the loss of power on the Sunday which resulted in having to leave the Mountain retreat.

Camp ran out of water. Somebody forgot to fill up the tank. Phoned but no assistance forthcoming. We left unanswered and without breakfast, unable to flush toilets.
