Holiday in The Drakensberg

Where To Stay & What To Day

Look up at its awesome peaks or hike along its ancient ridges and it is impossible not to see how the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park earned its names ‘Battlement of Spears’ and ‘Mountain of Dragons’. And while the appeal of a holiday in the Drakensberg definitely is centered around its breathtaking landscapes, this World Heritage designated park has much more to offer. From horse riding through grassy valleys to trout fishing in crystal-clear rivers, and from quaint farming villages to family-friendly mountain lodges, the Drakensberg is one of South Africa’s best holiday destinations.

Stretching for more than 300km the Drakensberg climbs up to nearly 3500m as it enters the borders of the mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Each region of the Northern, Central and Southern Drakensberg has its own stunning vistas and unique cultural and wildlife appeal.
