We booked a B&B in Central Drakensberg (see pictures for basic maps). Across the R600 there is plenty of accommodations and places to eat. If you're on a trip through SA it is worthwhile staying a few nights here. Although the area is remote, it is well accessible by car and you will find everything you need. Beautiful hikes. Blindman's corner (return via Keartland pass) is great, but cannot be underestimated. Take your time and enjoy the 5 hour hike. Very experienced hikers can probably race the track in 3 hours.

Spent two nights in the Berg with my biker buddies. Snow on the mountains and views out of the movies. Great setting for any occasion. Hotels are many and well appointed. beautiful walking /hiking trails and something for the serious climbers as well.

Wow I am hiking in the mountains for the last 34 years. The best hiking trails in South Africa. Lots of walking around in nature. Many lodges and Hotels in the area.
Respect the mountains not a place to fill around.
Awesome views pretty stunning pictures

Our biker group decided on going for a long winter's ride through the mountains. We started at the Wimpy in Margate on the South coast. As we approached the mountains we got this rush of pure bliss, fresh cold winter air and beautiful scenery. Vast fields of trees and natural woodland growth. Raptors in the open blue sky above us. Mountains of rock resembling castles. These mountains are a must see. The road was tarred and in good condition. Few potholes. It was just breathtaking. Little farmstalls along the road and places for a brunch or filling up your tummy.

The Drakensberg mountain area is a world heritage site and is always pleasant to visit. There are a large number of rock painting sites and some are relatively easy to access. The environment is pleasant, with streams and forests and wildlife. The baboons are however becoming a problem in some areas.
