Drakensberg Mountains

Adventure Holidays to the Drakensberg Mountains

The Drakensberg Mountains stretch for over 200km separating the Kwa Zulu Natal province of South Africa and the mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho.

From the massive basalt cliffs of its northern reaches to the soaring sandstone buttresses in the south, the ‘uKahlamba’ or barrier of spears offers some of the finest walking anywhere in Africa. This recently proclaimed World Heritage Site with its vast vistas and dramatic peaks, is complemented by a wealth of flora and fauna, including over 300 species of birdlife. There is always a chance of seeing the magnificent Bearded Vulture soaring close overhead or a troop of baboon scampering into the undergrowth.
