That’s the length, in kilo­me­tres, of the Rib­bok Trail, the only overnight hike in the Golden Gate High­lands Na­tional Park in the north-east­ern Free State. It’s the park’s flag­ship trail, and for good rea­son: it takes in­trepid walk­ers to the very top of the im­pos­ing Brand­wag But­tress as well as past a num­ber of epic peaks, of­fer­ing some of the most beau­ti­ful views of sand­stone cliff for­ma­tions in the whole of the Free State. Just two kilo­me­tres from the overnight hut is a gor­geous wa­ter­fall – per­fect for whiling away a sum­mer af­ter­noon (you’ve earned it). We found four dif­fer­ent ways to spend a week­end in this pop­u­lar park; start plan­ning your trip with the Oc­to­ber is­sue.
