Your guide to the best Drakensberg accommodation, activities and adventures.

The Drakensberg Experience Tourism Association promotes and markets accommodation and tourism related activities in the Drakensberg mountains, a region world renowned for its stunning vistas and beautiful sunny skies.

A World Heritage site known to the Zulu people as uKhahlamba meaning “Barrier of Spears”, the Drakensberg forms a majestic semi-circular border between KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and the inland mountain kingdom of Lesotho. We showcase the best the Northern Drakensberg, Central Drakensberg and surrounds has to offer - from amazing Drakensberg accommodation options to the ultimate adventures, activities and exciting places to vist and explore.

Our members’ establishments extend from Hidcote in the south to Sterkfontein Dam in the north, including towns such as Estcourt, Winterton, Bergville, Weenen and Geluksburg, and covering the area up to but not including the towns of Colenso and Ladysmith.

Take to the mountains for hiking, abseiling or rock climbing, or explore the trails on your mountain bike. Become a history buff with a visit to the battlefields, museums and other historical sites in the region.

Or why not make a cultural trip and marvel at some ancient bushman paintings or a performance by the legendary Drakensberg Boys Choir? There are so many exciting tourist attractions in the Drakensberg.

Our website is a wonderful resource for visitors looking to get the most out of their stay in our picturesque region.  So whether you are looking for places to stay in the Drakensberg, things to do, places to visit, restaurants or shops, you will find the information on this site.  Should you wish to make a reservation or a booking at one of the accommodation venues or any of the activity centres - or if you simply need more information - kindly contact the establishment directly.
