We spent our two week annual summer holiday in the magnificent Northern Drakensberg and although we had buckets... no truckloads of rain during our stay, it was a stunning holiday in an awe inspiring environment. By the time I get to post all the pictures I have taken (well, those worth posting at least), I would probably have run out of adjectives to use to describe how awesome the place is.
The Drakensberg is South Africa's biggest mountain range and is mostly situated in the province of KwaZulu Natal bordering the provinces of the Eastern Cape and Free State as well as Lesotho. The mountain is divided into three main areas. The Southern Berg, the Central Berg and the Northern Berg, which is the area we visited. The uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park which covers these areas has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site which spans 150km over 243 000 hectares at an average altitude of 3000 meters.
