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

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.
