The dramatic sandstone rock formations are the defining feature of Golden Gate. Named after two towering, almost perpendicular, rock formations that face each other and divided by a valley, Golden Gate National Park is a photographers paradise. Hiking trails, afford the opportunity of coming across some of the wildlife which include the black wildebeest, blesbok, springbok and eland. The rare bearded vulture, uncommon bald ibis and black eagle are just some of the highlights for bird watchers.
