Be awed by the most dramatic mountain views in southern Africa! The magnificent Drakensberg mountains tower over KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. In Afrikaans, Drakensberg means ‘dragon mountain’, although the local Zulu people call it ‘uKhahlamba’, meaning ‘barrier of spears’. The uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park in the region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a wealth of San rock art; you will find over 3,000 individual paintings here! The Central and Northern Drakensberg feature the most famous mountain formations including the aptly named Cathedral Peak, Giant’s Castle and Ampitheatre. The stunningly scenic region offers you plenty of outdoor activities including hiking or horse riding.
