I NEED YOUR HELP! I’m doing research about Social Media & Tourism, a topic I’m giving a talk about soon. Has any of my pictures/stories ever inspired you to go to a location? I’m referring to the case where you physically ended up going to that location. If so, please share your experience in the comments #southafrica #drakensberg • • • • • #dji #drone #drones #aerialphotography #dronestagram #fromwhereidrone #droneoftheday #dronephotography #travel #wanderlust #visualscollective #neverstopexploring #liveauthentic #moodygrams #ourplanetdaily #primeshots #explore #artofvisuals #instagram_sa #meetsouthafrica #thisissouthafrica

Stretching over 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) and touching parts such as Eastern Cape Province, Lesotho, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal Province, the Drakensberg (also known as Drakens Mountain, or Mountain of the Dragons) is one of the largest and most well-known parts of the Great Escarpment.
The Drakensberg is made up of some of South Africa's most breathtaking sights . When it winds through Mpumalanga, it features some of the province's most well-known tourist attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondavels and God's Window; and, f urther north, it passes through Tzaneen in Limpopo, a province whereby it winds through other tourist gems like the Iron Crown Mountain and Wolkberg Mountains, the highest mountain range in Limpopo.
In short, there's plenty to discover in the Drakensberg. Here are a few Instagram posts that showcase its beauty.
