KwaZulu Fam - The Drakensberg Mountains
19th July 2017 - 4:30pm
The Drakensberg mountain range, known to the Zulus as the Barrier of Spears, is an imposing wall of rock that rises to 3,000m, is situated in an UNESCO World Heritage site and is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts as it offers numerous pursuits such as white water rafting, rock climbing, abseiling, hiking, horse riding, mountain bike trails and fishing. We stayed one night in the Cathedral Peak Hotel with stunning views of the famous Cathedral Peak and Bell mountains where we had a briefing from the local municipality tourism representatives. During our time in the area we had a quad bike ride and experienced a forest canopy tour as we zip lined along a series of steel cables between platforms perched in trees and on cliff faces high up the mountains where we got a unique bird’s eye view of the forest world around and beneath us. Certainly not for the fainthearted but we survived and all thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.
