About this book

The Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, have a spectacular natural beauty. This range of huge peaks, towering basalt cliffs, massive sandstone outcrops, deep gorges and crystal-clear mountain streams forms the core of an area of outstanding walking potential with something for everyone. The area has a unique geological structure and a fascinating history. Add to this a large variety of antelope and other mammals as well as a regular bird list of over 200 species and it's easy to understand why the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park has been designated a World Heritage Site.

This title offers 78 day walks in 11 of the 13 recognised areas that range from one km to 20km, and from easy to strenuous. It is also packed with information about the abundant wildlife in the Park.
