ABOUT THE DRAKENSBERG REGION
The Drakensberg is a 200km mountain range and UNESCO World Heritage Site. It covers three provinces, from the Eastern Cape to Mpumalanga, with the largest portion of the area falling in KwaZulu-Natal. The Drakensberg Mountains are a wonderland of winter snow-capped peaks, waterfalls, rock art, and forests that ensure holidaymakers are spoiled with relentless scenic beauty. 
 
Also named 'Ukhahlamba' (the Barrier of Spears) by the Zulu people and 'The Dragon Mountain' by the Dutch Voortrekkers, the Drakensberg is an awe-inspiring 243,000 hectare range of basalt cliffs and peaks towering over riverine bush and yellowwood forests, forming a formidable barrier between KwaZulu-Natal and the Kingdom of Lesotho. The only road access is via Sani Pass, along which Africa’s highest pub can be found at 2,874m above sea level. The mountains make for terrific sheer rock and ice-climbing, abseiling, white water rafting, and helicopter rides.
 
The Drakensberg boasts a wealth of biological diversity with 290 species of birds, 48 species of animals, and rare varieties of plants. Combined with over 4,000 ancient San rock paintings found in caves and cliff overhangs, the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park has been carefully preserved and was declared a World Heritage Site in 2000.
