Drakensberg & Surroundings

Drakensberg Page – LINK

Drakensberg – known as ‘the dragon mountain’, is also referred to by the Zulu’s as ‘the Barrier of Spears’.  It is a place where the sheer magnificent natural beauty of the area gives one the feeling of inner peace and tranquillity.

The Drakensberg stretches over 200 kilometers.  The mountain range forms a natural border between Kwazulu-Natal and Lesotho.  The Northern and Central Drakensberg area have some of the most beautiful scenery that can be imagined. The area falls into four valleys –  Champagne Valley in the Central Berg, through the Didima Valley and Cathedral Peak, then the Royal Natal National Park and Amphitheatre Valley, and the Middledale Pass Valley in the Northern Berg.  Each of the four valleys has its own kind of beauty and character and offer magnificent mountain views.

The KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg area can be divided into 3 areas – Northern Drakensberg – Bergville ,  Central Drakensberg​ – Winterton and the Southern Drakensberg  with Himeville-Underberg and East Griqualand and Umzimkhulu

Makongo Hills, Kwazulu Private Game Reserve and Nambiti Game Reserve

Nambiti Game Reserve

The spirit of Africa will fill your soul and the experience will remain forever.

Nambiti Private Game Reserve is set in KwaZulu-Natal on 23 000 magnificent acres near the town of Ladysmith, conveniently close to Johannesburg/Pretoria (3.5-4 hours) and Durban (2.5 hours). Nambiti is also close to the renowned KwaZulu-Natal battlefields, a major attraction of this region. One of its major drawcards is that Nambiti is situated in a malaria-free area, meaning that guests don’t have to take medication before visiting.

This reserve boasts the attractions of the Big 5, the only one in the area to do so, and Nambiti’s biodiversity (it encompasses grasslands, riverine bush, savannah and thornveld) ensures a thrilling and unprecedented diversity of game (there are 40 other game species besides the big 5) and is a birders paradise.


Kwazulu Private Game Reserve

Makongo Hills is a unique and exclusive private reserve situated between Louwsburg and Pongola, overlooking the evergreen Mkhuze Valley in the heart of Zululand. The hills after which the property is named were once the site of a famous Zulu battle fought between Dingane and Shaka’s army’s for the title of the Zulu Kingdom.

The property is a birding hotspot home to a myriad of birdlife such as the Secretary Bird, Gorgeous Bush Shrike and the elusive Narina Trogan. This continually evolving conservation success story protects a diverse population of wildlife like Cheetah, leopard, Hyena, Zebra, Kudu, Wildebeest, Nyala and the Red Duiker among others.

Makongo Hills is conveniently located on the Battlefields route, approximately five hours from Johannesburg, four and half hours from Pietermaritzburg and 4 hours from Durban. The Swaziland border is a forty-minute drive from the property and Hluhluwe-Umfolozi is two and a half hours drive away. It is the perfect place from which to explore the deeply historic and cultural destination of Zululand.

North East Kwazulu Natal

St Lucia- where the Hippo has a right of way

North-East Kwazulu Natal – LINK

The north-east province of KwaZulu Natal was once the scene of regular land disputes between Zulu tribes and British colonists. Today, all their descendants peacefully coexist in this desirable region of South Africa.

KZN encompasses much of the best South Africa has to offer; it has the highest mountain peaks, 2 UNESCO world heritage sites, unique marine reserves, idyllic swimming beaches, modern progressive cities, traditional lands, battlefields, diverse wildlife, adventure sports and strong cultural influences.

The province’s climate contrasts between subtropical, warm temperatures along the coastline to cool, sub-alpine weather in the higher mountainous region in the west. So too is the contrast evident in living spaces where modern cities like Durban, actively participating in the world’s economy, are a short drive away from tribal villages following ancient traditions.
