Drakensberg

The name "Drakensberg" means "Dragons Moutain".
The Drakensberg (Afrikaans: Drakensberge, isiZulu: uKhahlamba, SeSotho: Maluti) is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment, which encloses the central Southern African plateau. The Great Escarpment reaches its greatest elevation in this region from 2,000 to 3,482 metres (6,562 to 11,424 feet).

The Northern and Central Drakensberg area has some of the most beautiful scenery that can be imagined. The area falls into four valleys, beginning with the Champagne Valley in the Central Berg, through the Cathedral Peak and Didima Valley, then the Royal Natal National Park and Amphitheatre Valley, and finally the Middledale Pass Valley in the Northern Berg. Each of the four valleys has its own kind of beauty and character; all have magnificent mountain views.
