Mountain Expedition

The Drakensberg is the highest and most extensive mountain range in Southern Africa and stretches from Sehlabathebe National Park in the south to the Sentinel in the north, a distance of circa. 200 km (125 miles). The summit is a plateau characterised by domes, ridges and valleys sloping gradually to the west and buttresses, cutbacks, gullies, free-standing peaks and sheer cliffs to the east. The Thaba Ntlenyana at 3,482 m (11,452 ft) is the highest point and Sani Pass at 2,865 m (9,400 ft) the lowest, with the average altitude being 3000 m above sea level.

With over 600 sites and 40,000 images recorded, the Drakensberg is home to 35% of South Africa's San rock art, placing it among one of less than 3% of World Heritage Sites declared for both natural and cultural importance.

The Drakensberg is undoubtedly the most ideal landscape in Southern Africa to plan and undertake a mountain expedition.
