Known to the Zulu people as uKhahlamba, or “Barrier of Spears”, the Drakensberg provides a dramatic semi-circular border between KwaZulu-Natal and the inland mountain kingdom of Lesotho.

The newly launched Drakensberg Experience highlights all the recommended travel attractions and services within this magnificent area, making it easy for travellers to find the ideal route to experience the perfect holiday in the berg.

In the Champagne Valley of the Central Drakensberg, you’ll find a number of leading hotels and resorts, such as the Nest Drakensberg Mountain Resort Hotel.

This established hotel is a well-known and popular resort in the area offering award-winning leisure resort accommodation and world-class conference facilities for business travellers.
