We figured that the best way to access Drakensberg was to stay at the Sani Lodge, located at the base of the mountains. As soon as we arrived, we quickly dropped off our bags in the room and began a short hike before sunset. It’s an easy hike, with the start of the trail beginning directly behind the bedrooms. 100% worth a few hours of your day, as it offers spectacular views of Drakensberg.
A bit about Drakensberg: The Drakensberg Mountains are considered a World Heritage Site for (1) it’s beauty, (2) it’s cultural Bushman paintings, (3) it’s flora and fauna (there are some rare species found only in the middle of the Drakensberg), and (4) it’s geology – it’s a very unique mountain range, as it’s both horizontal and layered. The Drakensberg was initially created from an ancient desert formation over 200 million years ago.
