Details

The Drakensberg Mountain range has an undulating, dominating beauty, but in addition to travelling through such breathtaking vistas, we’re going to visit the World Heritage Site, Giant’s Castle and the enigmatic Bushman paintings in the vicinity. They’re not far, so we set off on foot (average level of fitness required) for a leisurely 3km round hike to the site of the caves to discover this magical legacy of the bushmen. Our guide will share his knowledge of the paintings which date back 2000 years. The mountain resembles a sleeping giant, hence the name.

These mountains are also considered the home of the Bearded Vulture and mighty Eland, so keep your eyes peeled for these rare beasts too. If you come on this tour in April, you’ll see some crazy adrenaline junkies bombing down the mountain in the annual Giants Challenge mountain bike race!

Return to Durban via the Midlands Meander route, with its many craft and farmers markets(time permitting)
