Drakensburg Mountain Adventure Activities


Every person defines adventure differently; it may be physical, mental, social, cultural or spiritual. Drakensberg Mountain Retreat is the perfect platform for any person’s pursuit of adventure

Experience the rich culture, breathtaking views and captivating history of the majestic northern Drakensberg. Become captivated by the beauty and tranquility of this mountain resort situated between Harrismith and Berville, South Africa. This wonderful place offers spectacular views, vast spaces, wild winds, rain, sunshine, clouds and rainbows and in all of this – silence.


Being in the wild foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains walking, hiking or even adventure trekking are obvious activities on offer from easy strolls to grueling expeditions taking days. There are a number of well set-out walking and hiking trails which allow you to enjoy the varied landscape and flora of Drakensberg Mountain Retreat. The trails vary in difficulty and distance and are well mapped and marked. Experienced local guides are available.

The local Basotho and Zulu cultural villages offer opportunities to rub shoulders with the local inhabitants who have lived in the area for hundreds of years. Immerse yourself in their age-old tales of bloodshed that played out between the groups of black, brown, African and European as they battled for power, wealth and land in the fertile surrounding valleys.

For many, the true spirit of Adventure lies in the animals of Africa. Whether they be in the many game and nature reserves or forever captured in paint and colour in the myriad caves throughout the mountains.
For sportsmen excellent fishing and boating can be had in the many dams. Yellowfish, carp and bass are generally the fish on offer.

Arts and crafts abound. Fortune hunters can visit the many stalls, markets and studios looking for the ultimate treasure to adorn a wall, table or patio back home.
