Eco tourism Drakensberg
This involves traveling to a destination where flora, fauna and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. Of course the mountain views are excellent too. There really is no better place to explore a more fragile, pristine and relatively undisturbed natural area than Ukhahlamba – The Drakensberg Mountains – one of South Africa’s premier ecotourism destinations!
The area encompasses distinct landscape and biological diversity and is rich in species like the Bearded Vulture, Cape Vulture breeding colonies, Klipspringer, Drakensberg Cycad, and over 26 species of frogs. A big percentage of the flora and fauna in the Drakensberg are only found here.
The Basotho herdsmen and Zulu subsistence farmers make the Drakensberg their home now and has a rich history of human occupation dating back to the Stone Age.
By bringing tourism to the area we are trying to create an awareness of this unique ecosystem and contribute to local community development through nature-based tourism.
Eco tourism Drakensberg helps us touch nature.
