About Drakensberg Mountains

Stretching out for miles in every direction, the grassy slopes of the Drakensberg mountains are without a shadow of a doubt some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the whole of South Africa. They form the border between South Africa and the tiny nation of Lesotho and are divided in to a number of different regions, all with their own towns and facilities. Each area also has its own characteristics that make it both beautiful and unique, all of which should be explored in depth in order to make the most of a trip to 'the Berg'.
