Drakensberg is located in the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa, and is one of the province’s two heritage sites. This scenic destination forms part of the spectacular Drakensberg Mountains. Drakensberg can be accessed by scenic road safaris and air transfers.
Drakensberg can be divided into five sections with smaller towns located in its foothills - Bergville, Northern Drakensberg, Winterton and Central Drakensberg, Himeville, Southern Drakensberg, East Griqualand and uMzimkhulu.
