Let Southbound take you to a place of wonder and beauty that sprawls in breathtaking splendour between the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and the ice-capped peaks of the Kingdom of Lesotho.

 

The AmaZulu - ‘People of Heaven’ - who live in the long eastern shadow of the mountains call them uKhahlamba, the ‘Barrier of spears’. The first Boer settlers to trail their ox-wagons into the foothills dubbed them the Drakensberg, the ‘Dragon’s mountain’.

 

Both names are in official use today, but South Africans, in unconscious recognition of its singularity, tend simply to refer to the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg as The Berg - ‘The Mountain’.


  • The Park - 2,500 square kilometres - the single largest mountain wilderness area protected anywhere in Africa

  • Sacred to the ancients, the Bushmen, as depicted in the highest concentration of rock art in Africa

  • A historical melting pot of Bushmen, Xhosa, Sotho, Zulu, Boer and Brit

  • A wealth of fauna and flora with 2,153 plant, 48 mammal and over 300 bird species identified

  • Detailed maps, colour photographs, hiking trails and route guides

  • Comprehensive listings for travellers of places to go, things to see, and accommodation
