Excitement, history and a touch of glamour in the Drakensberg

Are you looking for all the excitement Africa has to offer, but a little off the beaten tourist track? Then the delights of the Drakensberg are for you! From luxury lodges and rich wildlife to adventure trails, historic monuments and wine estates, there’s a little of something for everyone, which makes this unique area one of Pembury Travel and Tours’ favourite KwaZulu Natal destinations.

Avid hikers will love the trails open to them in the rolling foothills of the Drakensberg. Head out to Monks Cowl for breathtaking sights- be sure to start the trail early to have time to truly appreciate the vista’s unrolling around you. Or ramp up the adventure with a canopy tour at Cathkin Park, and experience the world from a new angle. Get your heart pounding with a zip-line adventure, or abseil down some of the dramatic peaks around you. Indulge your inner child with paintballing, then head out to relax and unwind at the great restaurants in the area.

A little too much adrenaline for you? Then why not chill out at Cathedral Peak wine estate, and titillate your taste buds a little. Or head out on a horseback tour of the area, and spend a little time bonding with the beasts of the land. If you prefer the hum of an engine under your feet, the unique ‘Scootours’ are for you, allowing you to swoop along the trails with minimal effort needed.

Explore the diverse history of the region with a plethora of exciting and unique niche museums. Be sure to head over to Dragon rock reptile centre to learn a little more about these unique critters, too, as well as the many wildlife rehabilitation centres in the area. And, of course, no trip to the area would be complete without experiencing the wildlife up close and personal at any of the fantastic reserves in the area. The unique topography of the Drakensberg area means you’ll experience vastly diverse micro-climates, each with their own beasts and flora- be sure to bring your camera to make the folks at home suitably jealous!
