Walking in the Drakensberg : 75 Walks in the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park Paperback


A guidebook to the Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.

The book describes 75 day walks, between 1km and 20km long, in Royal Natal National Park, Cathedral Peak, Monk's Cowl, Injisuthi, Giant's Castle, Highmoor, Kamberg, Lotheni, Cobham, Garden Castle and Bushman's Nek.

The Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, have a spectacular natural beauty.

This range of huge peaks, towering basalt cliffs, massive sandstone outcrops and deep gorges forms the core of an area of unlimited potential for walkers, until recently little known outside South Africa.

The area has a unique geological structure and a fascinating history as well as a large variety of antelope and other mammals and a regular bird list of over 200 species.

Written by a qualified Safari Guide, this book includes: descriptions of 75 graded day walks and scrambles in 11 areas of the park; lots of information about the local wildlife and about facilities in each of the areas; and inspirational photographs and clear route maps.
