South Africa’s highest mountain range, Drakensberg Mountains attract nature enthusiasts with scenic views and a wealth of outdoor activities. The natural beauty and a rich collection of rock paintings left by the ancient San people, some of which are nearly 4,000 years old, earned the area the status of a World Heritage Site. The mountains are home to numerous endemic plants and over 300 bird species, including rare bearded vultures. One of the most interesting ways to see this landscape of dramatic cliffs, hidden valleys, and pristine forests is from a hot air balloon.

This so beautiful and exotic place makes me to feel far away from my home, Korea. Different animals, different people, and different food. But it is so good to stay
Fantastic look for going tour with friends
Fantastic hiking experience in the Drakensburg mountains. I hiked with some friends from South Africa-into Lesotho, and then back out again. Amazing scenery! Got fantastic pictures...we camped for about a week and set up a little 'settlement' each evening. Great experience..wish I could do it again one day!
Great place to explore by bicycle. Sani Pass is challenging, but well worth the effort.
