Why Travel to Drakensberg Mountains? by

A number of African Budget Safari tours include this breathtaking area. With spectacular peaks, gushing rivers and waterfalls, pristine mountain air and fantastic walking trails, it's one of South Africa's gems.

Highlights of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg

The Scenery

The uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it's not hard to see why. On its proclamation, UNESCO described it as an area of 'exceptional natural beauty in its soaring basaltic buttresses, incisive dramatic cutbacks, and golden sandstone ramparts...the site’s diversity of habitats protects a high level of endemic and globally threatened species, especially birds and plants...[and it] also contains many caves and rock-shelters with the largest and most concentrated group of paintings in Africa south of the Sahara.'

We couldn't say it better.

Royal Natal National Park

A favourite for locals and international travellers alike, this area in the northern Berg (as locals refer to it), is known for its wonderful hikes - to suit any level of fitness - through the most beautiful landscapes imaginable.

The area includes the Amphitheatre, a spectacular natural amphitheatre (surprise!) which spans 5 km and reaches up to 1000 m. It includes the Mont-Aux-Sources Peak, aptly named for being the source of five rivers, including the Tugela, which is one of South Africa's main rivers.

A popular hike in the park takes the hiker up a chain ladder for a view of the Tugela Falls and Amphitheatre that'll take your breath away.

San paintings

The San people, colloquially referred to as 'Bushmen',  are descendents of early Stone Age progenitors and roamed between the Drakensberg and coast for thousands of years.

Sadly, between the Zulu people and the Boers, the last remaining San were either killed or chased over into Lesotho by the late 1800's. All that is left of this incredible culture in the area is some fine examples of their rock art in caves around the uKhahlamba Drakensberg.

Helicopter flights

For a birds-eye view over these dramatic peaks, a number of operators offer helicopter flips. Land on one of the highest peaks and experience true silence while you drink a glass of champagne and marvel at the view. You've never experienced champagne tasting this good!

Horse trails

If walking is not your thing, a number of guided horse trails may be just the ticket for you to climb the hills and see the views!

Drakensberg Boy's Choir School

This world famous choir school is situated in a beautiful valley in the Central Berg.

On Wednesday afternoons during term time, one can visit the school and listen to the choir in the 600-seater auditorium at the school.

Vulture restaurants

See these incredible, prehistoric-looking birds feed at various 'Vulture Restaurants' in the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park. Carcasses are placed in a designated area, to which the birds flock, allowing the visitor a far closer look than is possibe in the wild.

Adrenaline Activities

For those wanting to get the blood pumping through their veins a little faster, uKhahlamba Drakensberg has much to offer.

These are just some of the plethora of activities offered:

  • Abseiling
  • Rock climbing
  • Quad biking
  • White Water Rafting
