Introducing Northern Drakensberg

The majestic Northern Drakensberg in South Africa, KwaZulu-Natal Province, is the highest area and possibly the most impressive of the Drakensberg mountain range which rises here to over 3 000 meters. Known to the Zulu people as Ukhahlamba which can be translated as 'Barrier of Spears', the Mountains of the Dragon provide a magnificent semi-circular border between KwaZulu-Natal and the inland mountain kingdom of Lesotho.

The spectacular Northern Drakensberg is the source of the Tugela River which is the largest river in KwaZulu-Natal.  The Tugela River plunges about 950 meters over the edge of the Mont-aux-Sources Plateau in a magnificent waterfall. This waterfall,which is called the Tugela Falls, is the second highest waterfall in the world. The Amphitheatre is possibly the most photographed feature of the Northern Drakensberg in South Africa.

The Northern Drakensberg in the KwaZulu-Natal Province in South Africa comprises the towns of Winterton and Ladysmith and is dominated by the magnificent Champagne, Cathedral and Cathkin peaks. The Northern Drakensberg escarpment is often covered in snow during the winter months, transforming this region of South Africa into a picture-postcard winter wonderland. Popular with hikers, rock climbers, trout fishermen, and other holidaymakers, the Northern Drakensberg offers a wide range of hotels, country lodges, and bed and breakfast accommodation as well as camping sites and caravan parks.

Most of the Northern Drakensberg makes up the Natal Drakensberg Park which is a scenic wilderness area with an abundance of wildlife. Hikers here are often surprised by bushbuck, oribi, mountain reedbuck, tiny duiker, and the largest of South Africa’s antelope species, the eland, as well as many others which they encounter. Enormous lammergeier, or bearded vultures, fly overhead and baboons bark from the cliffs.

The spring brings the magnificent and colorful carpets of wild flowers and the pink and orange watsonia, like miniature gladioli, bloom thickly on the hillsides. In autumn the fields and lower reaches of the Drakensberg are often a waist-high sea of confetti-like pink, white and deep velvet red cosmos blossoms. In the higher reaches on the slopes of the Little Berg, different varieties of protea trees show their prehistoric flowers, and ancient tree ferns and the odd cycad dot the gullies.

The Northern Drakensberg Mountains is home to many well preserved Bushman painting sites which are the evidence of the small, primitive San people who practised a prehistoric life style in the area long ago. The earliest of these paintings are about 800 years old, and the golden age of the painters was between 400 and 200 years ago.The 'Big Five' Nambiti Game Reserve provides numerous exclusive and luxurious game lodges where guests have the opportunity to explore the untamed African bush with its abundant wildlife.
