Stop At: Kamberg Nature Reserve, uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, KwaZulu-Natal

Our destination is the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Drakensberg mountain range. The Kamberg Nature Reserve was created in 1951 because of it its unique natural beauty, wildlife and historical cave rock sites. The reserve has over 6200 hectors of rolling mountains and deep valleys with an extensive network of hikes and trails. The Walk to the Caves Rock Art Site is over 60 minutes in length from the camp and requires an average level of fitness to complete. The natural landscape has many rock shelters, containing San rock paintings. These were created by the San people over a period of at least 4000 years. The rock paintings are outstanding in quality and diversity representing the spiritual life of the San people who no longer live in the region.
