Experience the beauty of the Drakensberg when walking from the foothills of the mountain range to the escarpment and back. Set in the southeast of Mpumalanga, this trail traverses deep valleys and high mountains. As hikers walk from the low-lying areas to the higher areas in the mountains, they can expect a wide variety of plants that include the dwarf red-hot poker, pineapple flower and eight disa species.

 

This trail is a must for plant lovers. The trails are moderately difficult to very difficult.
