Take a #ShotLeft to the Drakensberg in Kwa Zulu Natal for a back-to-nature experience as you see the sun go down from the edge of a cave. Witness its stunning scenery while hiking and, often, superb examples of the world-famous San rock paintings – arguably the finest in the country. If you're prepared to rough it for a night then a unique way to get really close to nature and to experience the mountains at first-hand is to overnight in a cave.
