Walking Holidays in the Drakensberg

The Drakensberg Mountains, meaning 'Dragon Mountains' in Afrikaans, are arguably home to some of the best trekking in South Africa. These majestic peaks are nestled within the UNESCO World Heritage site encompassing the central Southern African plateau.

Standing as one of the world's most magnificent mountain ranges, the Drakensberg Mountains are an untouched paradise. The range is a haven of miles of grasslands with sandstone buttresses, rugged mountains, the dramatic amphitheatre, and the world-renowned plateau. The Tugela Gorge trail, a highlight of a walking holiday in Drakensberg, unveils the opportunity to journey back over 4000 years through the lens of the San people's rock art, while the allure of the Drakensberg region also invites families to partake in its adventurous experiences. Either way, the Drakensberg Mountains provide the perfect setting for an adventurous walking holiday.
