The Drakensberg Mountains is a 200-kilometre-long mountainous wonderland and world heritage site. Thee Drakensberg falls mostly in Kwazulu Natal. These Mountains are made for walking and hiking and taking in the views.
Drive up the jaw-dropping Sani Pass, and you will not be disappointed. Its a torturous drive but the views are breathtaking.All the way to the top you will see the brave hearts hiking, biking and walking. Sopped at the Highest Pub in Africa for a cup of tea.
The absence of ambient light makes the night sky a huge planetarium and it can be wonderful to see so many stars.
Falcon Ridge in the Central Drakensberg offers an incredible display of large birds of prey. The entire ‘unrehearsed’ show is slick and informative. As it is a popular show, take seating or a cushion in the event the chairs provided have already been taken. Also take along a hat and sunscreen as no shade provided.
The adrenaline junkies can enjoy rock climbing, abseiling, white water rafting or taking a helicopter ride to view the Drakensberg mountains from above.
If you prefer the gentler, more leisurely pace of fishing or walking the many hiking routes on both lower and upper slopes of the Drakensberg, you can watch out for the 290 species of birds, 48 species of mammals, or the rare varieties of plant life found in the park. View the San paintings depicting their life experiences in the mountains.
But whatever you do here make sure you have visited the Drakensberg Mountains soon.
