Officially known as uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, this World Heritage Site encompasses 240,000 hectares of wilderness, featuring soaring buttresses, deep forested valleys, rolling high altitude grasslands, rocky gorges and crystal clear rivers and pools. Not for nothing does ‘uKhahlamba’ mean ‘Barrier of spears’.

MUST DO ACTIVITIES:

  • Brave Sani Pass in a 4×4 and have a well-deserved drink at the highest pub in Africa

  • View original San rock art made over a period of 4000 years
  • Hike to the top of Tugela Falls, the second highest waterfall in the world, with a drop of 948 metres
