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

Description

A guidebook to the Maloti-Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.

The book describes 75 day walks of between 1km and 26km long, in Royal Natal National Park, Cathedral Peak, Monk's Cowl, Injisuthi, Giant's Castle, Highmoor, Kamberg, Lotheni, the Himeville and Underberg districts, plus Bushman's Nek.

Graded from easy to strenuous, the walks take in the spectacular natural beauty of the area. Written by a qualified Safari Guide, this book covers 11 areas of the Maloti-Drakensberg Park.

It combines clear route descriptions and maps with inspirational photographs, alongside lots of information about local wildlife and the facilities available in each area covered. 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.
