  • Relatively easy to get to, Highmoor offers great hiking, peaceful surroundings, and amazing views. Fees are 40 ZAR / person as of Dec 2018, and the facilities are adequate, clean and well maintained.....  more »
  • Easy access road onto the little berg. Stupendous views. Lots of different day hikes. Cannot get lost up there. Would love to go back there.  more »

  • A plateau some way back from the escarpment, giving immense vistas of the Giant's Castle area. Lots to explore. It has one of the best caves in the Drakensberg. The dirt road is good, though very stony and slow, but a hatchback will manage.
  • What a magical place. One of a few places I know for digital detox. Great for walks and fishing. Saw great wildlife jackal, vultures, crowned cranes, a variety of antelope species. One herd numbering 100 plus.
  • Easy pass to drive. Beautiful mountain scenery with great rock formations. Nice picnic spot at the top.
  • Great outing. Easy walks to the dams. Tranquil with the majestic Drakensberg mountains in the background.
  • Rustic campsite with great views, basic ablutions.
