Our camp takes place in beautiful Golden Gate, which is located in the Eastern Free State – near the Lesotho border.

Dinosaurs once roamed the Golden Gate region, but now it is home to wildebeest, eland, springbok, and zebra.
This up-in-coming training spot has even attracted international professional athletes. The 1840m (6040 feet) high altitude setting makes it an ideal location for endurance athletes looking to enhance their performance.
