Description:

Both natural history guide and travellers' companion, A Guide to the Drakensberg showcases the Drakensberg's pristine wilderness areas and its rich wildlife heritage, its historical significance - preserved in rock art - and its geological make-up. At the same time, it facilitates travel in the vast "playground" by providing maps, lists of walks and hikes in the main reserves, recommended routes and sites, brief descriptions of towns and villages in the area and what they offer from a natural history and cultural standpoint, accommodation, contact details and numerous practical tips.

The book is divided into three regions - KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg (northern, central and southern), North-eastern Cape Drakensberg and North-eastern Free State. The main region is the KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg, popularly known as "the Berg", where the extensive uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park extends across the subdivisions, incorporating most of the region's mountain reserves and wilderness areas. Included in the volume is an information A-Z containing practical tips and pointers, and comprehensive lists of the wildlife in the region.
