Day 2, Durban to Lesotho/Sani Pass Leaving Durban at 06h30, we head towards the village of Underberg at the foot of the  Drakensberg Mountains. Here we change to 4x4 vehicles, tough enough to climb the highest vehicle pass in Southern Africa. We enjoy the magnificent views from Sani Pass and bound to make a lasting impression on first-timers. At the top is the border post between South Africa and Lesotho, (passports are a must).
Once past the border we visit a Sotho tribal village, enjoying lunch at
the highest pub in Africa. Perched right near the edge of the mountain, it has few rivals in terms of pub views. Afterwards we wind our way gently back down the mountain, settling into our accommodation.
Accommodation: Drakensberg Gardens or similar.

Day 3, Drakensberg Mountain Today we amble through the glorious southern Berg to Royal Natal National Park through the lush, green Midlands Meander area, where city folk have chosen to swop stress for the slow lane, and work with arts and crafts. We’ll be stopping for a little shopping. Our  accommodation is set in this magnificent Park The afternoon is at your own at leisure to explore those aspects which most interest you. The Park is renowned for its spectacular scenery and wonderful mountain trails
which reach into the heart of this KwaZulu-Natal nature reserve.

For walkers and hikers, there are short excursions; for those content to absorb the beauty of the Drakensberg, there’s the Amphitheatre, a 5 kilometre long, 500 metre high rock wall, and above the rock face, Mont-Aux-Sources peak where the Orange River journeys west across South Africa to the Atlantic Ocean. The Thukela (Tugela) River – boasting one of the highest waterfalls in the world – cascades down the rock face as it heads east to the Indian Ocean. In a nutshell, the scenery is breathtaking. Do your camera a favour…set it on automatic.
Accommodation: Mont Aux Sources Hotel or similar.

Day 4, Drakensberg Mountain After breakfast, we set off on a leisurely  hike to age-old bushman paintings (average level of fitness
required), once home to South Africa’s earliest inhabitants, the San people, better known as Bushman. Enjoy a fascinating tour of the rock paintings, after which you can choose to return to our accommodation soaking in the beauty or strap on those hiking boots, and take to the mountains again for an afternoon hike.
Accommodation: Mont Aux Sources Hotel or similar.

Day 5, Drakensberg to Johannesburg After a wonderful mountain breakfast, we set off on our road trip to Johannesburg. Sit back and enjoy the scenery, and we’ll be there by mid-afternoon.
