You are only moments away

AA haven for adventurous travellers. From the simple pleasure of walking one of many trails, to exploring the rugged mountain peaks the Zulus call uKhahlamba—“the barrier of spears”—the Drakensberg experience offers you adventure, nature, culture and angelic hymns.

Set aside a good few days for the Drakensberg tour as there is so much to see and do, so many villages in its valleys to explore, trails to hike, people to encounter and sites to visit. Located in the Midlands of the KwaZulu-Natal province, it is centred on the Drakensberg World Heritage Site, which includes Giants Castle and the Central and Northern Drakensberg. The route extends from Hidcote in the south to Sterkfontein Dam in the north.

Did You Know?
GGiants Castle, part of the Drakensberg Experience Route, was one of the first conservation areas on the continent.

VVisit the 900m-high Tugela Falls, or hike the Mnweni Valley, view Cathedral Peak Valley and the Rock Art Centre at Didima, then take a visit to Champagne Valley where Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak dominate. A must is Injisuthi Valley, which features South Africa’s highest peak, and Giants Castle with its famous San paintings. There is also a choice of three game reserves close by, one of which has the Big Five.
