The Drakensberg (derived from the Dutch word ‘Drakensberge’ meaning ‘Dragon Mountains’) is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment, which encloses the central Southern African plateau.
The Zulu people named the 300-kilometre stretch of mountain bordering KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho 'uKhahlamba’, meaning ‘Barrier of Spears’ after its rugged, sharp appearance. Nowadays, locals refer to this region simply as the ‘Berg’.
The Drakensberg area falls into four valleys, starting with the Champagne Valley in the Central Berg, running through to the Cathedral Peak and Didima Valley, then the Royal Natal National Park and Amphitheatre Valley, and lastly the Middledale Pass Valley in the Northern Berg. Each valley has its own beauty and character, but all boast magnificent views and plenty of activities.
The area is a paradise for nature lovers offering amazing bird watching (the Drakensberg area is home to 299 recorded bird species), spectacular hiking, camping, horse riding, fishing, rock climbing and abseiling.
The earliest inhabitants of the Drakensberg were the San or Bushmen and the region protects an incredible cultural legacy of rock art in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, a World Heritage Site. Over 17 shelters and 4000 Bushman paintings can be found in Drakensberg caves and cliffs.
The central Berg is also home to the world-famous schools choir, The Drakensberg Boys Choir School.
