The beauty of the undulating Drakensberg Mountain range is indisputable, but in addition to travelling through such breathtaking vistas, we’re going to visit the World Heritage Site of Giant’s Castle and the enigmatic Bushman paintings in the vicinity. They’re not far, so we set off on foot for a leisurely 3km round hike to the site of the caves to discover this magical legacy of the bushmen (moderate fitness level required). Our guide will share his knowledge of the paintings which date back 2 000 years.
We’re bound to have built up an appetite, so we’ll tuck into the hearty lunch laid on. Our return to Durban is via the charming Midlands Meander Route, a community of country crafters and farmers who produce quality wares and live enviable country lives. This rural area is extremely appealing, and you’ll find it an appropriate way to unwind after this energetic day.
Umhlanga Hotels – A surcharge of ±R250 per vehicle (1-7 pax) each way will apply for collection and drop-off.
What to wear:
Although Kwa-Zulu Natal is considered a Sub-Tropical climate and should be rather warm & humid, the weather can be tricky in the Drakensberg Mountains, so make sure you bring both short & long light clothing with comfortable walking shoes.
