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. Put Drakensberg Mountains at the forefront of your travel plans using our Cathkin Park day trip planner.
