African Travel - uKhahlamba Drakensburg Park

In the Kwazulu Natal Province in South Africa, one will find a true gem - the uKhahlamba Drakensburg Park. Here one can enjoy luxury African travel at its best, or if you prefer one could include this area in a self drive tour of South Africa. The road that crosses the escarpment is called the Sani Pas, a 4x4 route which connects Natal and Lesotho. It is known to be rather challenging at times, and should only be attempted by experienced drivers in a fully equipped 4x4 vehicle.

The uKhahlamba Drakensburg Park was declared National Heritage Site by UNESCO for numerous reasons. Apart from the natural beauty of the area, the park also contains numerous shelters and caves with rock paintings created by the San or Bushmen people many years ago. These painting are unique to the area, and are a very extraordinary site to see when on tour in South Africa.

Scenic sites in the uKhahlamba Drakensburg Park include Cathedral Peak, Giants Castle and the spectacular Amphitheatre -a rock formed wall stretching over 5 kilometres in length and 500 metres in height.

The Drakensberg is a place where one goes during your travels in South Africa to unwind and reconnect with nature. Activities include biking, horse riding, fishing and the hiking trails are in abundance in the area. Bird watching can also be enjoyed with sightings of Black Eagles, Bearded Vultures, Wattled Crane, Yellow Breasted Pipit and more.

Accommodation ranges from luxury suites, family chalets to camp sites amongst the many lodges in the area. Nearby attractions to the Drakensburg include the famous battlefields in Kwazulu Natal. Many tour operators offer guided tours of the fascinating battlefields. It is best to go with a knowledgeable tour guide in order to truly appreciate the experience - a must see for interested parties during their travels in Africa!

The uKhahlamba Drakensburg Park is not entirely suitable for a South African safari - although much wildlife exists within the park such as reedbuck, eland, leopard, jackal, caracal and so forth. It is ideal for individuals wanting to simply enjoy the natural beauty of this magnificent part of South Africa during a vacation to Africa.
