Drakensberg Hiking Tours
It is no wonder that J.R.R. Tolkien was inspired by the Drakensberg Mountains. Apart from the jagged stone-gilt edges of the mountains, the valley walls have a running line of gothic-like rock ‘towers’ looming portentously into the African sky. South Africa Adventures offers Drakensberg Hiking Tours for all ages.
The range extends for over 200km and forms a natural border sometimes over 1000m high between South Africa and the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The average height of the Drakensberg is 2900m with many peaks reaching over 3300m. The highest mountain in South Africa is called Mafadi (3451m), located in the Unjasuhti Valley of Kwazulu Natal. Other popular peaks include Cathedral Peak, Champagne Castle and of course the world renowned Amphitheatre where you can gaze in wonder at the second highest waterfall in the world as it cascades over the escarpment into the valley 947m below.
