The Golden National Park of Free State, South Africa, is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains. The sandstone cliffs of the park reflect the sun’s golden hues in a spectrum of brilliance. It is from this golden color that the park derives its name. Brandwag Rock is the most prominent and imposing cliff which looks upon the main rest camp with authority. The Golden Gate National Park covers a territory of 11,600 hectares of highland habitat which plays an effective habitat to various species like black wildebeest, Burchell's zebra, bald ibis, bearded vulture, etc. Activities which include game viewing, night drives, horse-riding, etc., along a beautiful backdrop of the Maluti Mountains, are very popular among the tourists.
