Whether you are in the region for team building, conferencing, hiking, unwinding or even honeymooning, you cannot help but fall in love with the breath-taking views that are found in the Drakensberg region. From the larger peaks of Giants Castle, Cathedral Peak and Mont-Aux-Sources to the gentle foothills, the country’s highest mountain range is also large enough to span through multiple provinces, from KwaZulu-Natal to Mpumalanga and beyond.
