The Kamberg Nature Reserve lies within the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park of South Africa and is situated centrally in the foothills of the mountains.

Kamberg is known for its excellent fly fishing and recently a Bushman Rock Art Site has been opened to the public.

The Kamberg Nature Reserve nestles in the foothills of the Drakensberg Park, its central position ideal for visits to many other well known Drakensberg areas, from Lotheni Nature Reserve to Giants Castle Nature Reserve.

Kamberg is a delightful spot in it's own right with three attractive picnic sites near the river and trout dams which provide a relaxing alternative to the scenic attractions of the many well maintained walks in the area. There are a number of self guided trails from the camp, one of which is suitable for handicapped visitors.

As well as the Mooi River, trout fishing can also be enjoyed in several dams which are open to anglers. Kamberg's trout hatchery is well worth a visit and is open to the public on a daily basis.

There is magnificent rock art shelter in and a guided walk to the area is conducted daily. The earliest inhabitants of the Drakensberg were Bushmen. These San people lived in harmony with their environment, taking no more than they needed to survive. Sadly, violent clashes with white settlers and Nguni tribes brought their era to an end and all that remains is their remarkable art.
