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.

We tread lightly on the earth.

“Take only photographs and leave only footprints” is our motto. We carry all our  equipment on our backs and we don’t use established base camps so that when we leave the area there is no trace we have ever been there.

The Drakensberg is not just a world heritage site but a wonder of nature waiting to be explored. Not only is it vitally important as a good source of fresh water but has a lot of Bushman paintings. The San or Bushmen used to make this amazing place their home and you can still see their paintings drawn in caves.

Also we use local Zulu tribesmen as porters to provide direct financial benefits and empowerment to their community. This gives us the opportunity to learn about their local customs, culture & history. All this while we hike into relatively undisturbed areas in order to appreciate and enjoy nature while promoting conservation and socially responsible travel.
