Our garden gets regular visits from mischievous vervet monkeys. Be sure to close doors and windows when you’re not in the room or they will gladly help themselves to your bread and bananas! 🍌🐒 #vervetmonkey #lifeinafrica #thatsdarling

SUPRISE: This Oribi seemed to appear out of no where on a recent hike in Garden Castle and make its way through the grassland in a picturesque valley. Considering they are an endangered species to was great to spot one! #drakensberg #drakensbergmountains #mountains #wildlife #wildlifephotography #oribi #canonphotography

Who’s had the privilege and who of you are keen to experience the thrill? Sunrise from the top of the Drakensberg Amphitheater. Standing at the edge is not for the faint hearted.

“A large section of the Drakensberg is a World Heritage site on two counts. It is firstly the largest collection of rock art in the world. More than 30,000 examples of the San or Bushman are found in this mountain range. Also, as a result of its unique fauna and flora. This makes it one of just over twenty world heritage sites to receive this status on two counts.” . . Things we’d hoped to do: Canoeing ✅ Hiking✅ Horse riding ✅ Spa treatment ✅ Target shooting ❌ Wine tasting ✅ Zip lining ❌ . . . We will certainly be going back to explore more of Drakensberg. We loved it. ❤️ Have you been there before? . . #drakensbergmountains #traveling #travelgram #traveldiary #wanderlust #kzn #southafrica #kzntourism #welovekzn #gottalovekzn #shotleft #explore #travelphotography #naturephotography #waterfall #conoeing #hiking #horseriding #spatreatment #targetshooting #winetasting #ziplining

So many fascinating places to visit in the Drakensberg, from the animal life to the history, the Berg is as interesting as it is spectacular!

Are you a birder?⠀ ⠀ For the birding enthusiast, a walk around the game farm is a must. So is a walk through the Hlatikhulu vlei. ⠀ Some of the "birding specials" include lammergeier (bearded vulture), Cape vulture, long-crested eagle, forest buzzard, bush blackcap, Gurney's sugarbird, ground woodpecker and buff-streaked chat. Of course a walk around the wetland wouldn't be complete without looking for the three crane species - crowned, blue and wattled crane - as well as the spoonbill, African rail and the ever-elusive Bittern 🦅⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #childrenfriendly #family #familyholiday #drakensberg #berg #giantscastle #familygoals #familytime #thisiskzn #midlands #midlandsmeander #southafrica #nationalheritage #vacation #instatravel #seesouthafrica #nature #travelgram #hiking #mountains #nature #kwazulunatal #drakensbergmountains #hike #views #sights #traveling

Bract fungi and lush berg foliage. In the berg, the valleys are mostly aligned east to west meaning that they are north and south facing, something referred to in geography as aspect. In the Southern Hemisphere, the north facing slopes, which get more sun are drier and thus have more grasses, while the south facing slopes retain their moisture and allow for beautiful forested glades. Yellow woods and mountain hard-pear amongst other trees are found in these zones. And bract fungi snack on the fallen providing nutrients back into the soil for new growth. #southafrica #southafricanroutes #N3Gateway #hikemzantsi #hikingsouthafrica #hikingsa @hiking.southafrica #drakpix #drakensberg #drakensbergmountains #ukhalambadrakensbergpark #drakensberghikes #scenicphotography #landscapes #outdoors #wanderlust #landscapephotography

"This was my second time camping on the Amphitheater which I would do over and over again since I believe it's one of the most magnificent parts of South Africa. Another interesting thing is that this part of the Berg also forms a natural boarder between South Africa and Lesotho" @geraldzinyo #FMSTakeOver _____________________________________________________ #adventure #travel #nature #explore #photography #wanderlust #hiking #travelphotography #travelgram #mountains #outdoors #photooftheday #landscape #naturephotography #instatravel #adventuretime #camping #traveling #offroad #ampitheater #drakensberg #drakensbergmountains #lesotho #kznmountains #tugelariver

After a long hike in the sun, a shot left through the bushes brings you to this refreshing beauty. It sounds majestic and looks even better on the eye. The brave can swim in this natural pool, and the rest of us can admire its existence from the surrounding rocks. . .

One thing you know about us is that we love traveling. One thing we’d like to add to your knowledge is that we plan to explore South Africa as much as we can before crossing the boarders, because we have a stunning country!! Fun Fact: Drakensberg is one of the highest mountain ranges in the country. It has an average height of 2,000 meters; two of its highest peaks (Mafadi and Thabana-Ntlenyana) are 3450 and 3482 meters high respectively. . . #drakensbergmountains #traveling #travelgram #traveldiary #wanderlust #kzn #southafrica #kzntourism #welovekzn #gottalovekzn #shotleft #explore #funfacts

"This is is Tugela Falls, just before the drop. Unfortunately there wasn't much rain at the time we went, so the river was basically dry." @geraldzinyo #FMSTakeOver The Tugela River is the largest river in KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. It is one of the most important rivers of our country. It originates in Mont-aux-Sources of the Drakensberg Mountains and plunges 947 metres down the Tugela Falls. _______________________________________________________ #adventure #travel #nature #explore #photography #wanderlust #hiking #travelphotography #travelgram #mountains #outdoors #photooftheday #landscape #naturephotography #instatravel #adventuretime #camping #traveling #offroad #ampitheater #drakensberg #drakensbergmountains #tugelariver #tugela

Where to find winter sun South Africa Dec – Jan temp: 25- 28 degrees Hours of sunshine: 8.1 hours Flight time: 12 hours Want a hotter climate without jetlag? Well South Africa could be just the ticket, with just a two hour time difference you could get an overnight flight and wake up feeling fine (depending on how well you can sleep on flights – maybe treat yourself to an upgrade?) Fly to Cape Town and visit Table Mountain which towers over the city, the penguin colony on Boulder's Beach, the wine estates and Kruger National Park. The city of Durban was included in ABTA’s Travel Trends 2019 as a top destination to visit. Stunning beaches border the fun and buzzy city of Durban which is also close by to Kwa Zulu Natal – incredibly, diverse landscapes and chance to see the “Big Five” animals, the unforgettable Drakensberg Mountains and the ancient rock art of the San people. South Africa offers huge range of experiences and is a great value destination for all travellers. #gambia #gambiaholidays #durban #capetown #tablemountain #drakensbergmountains #southafrica #wintersunshine #wintergetaways #ancientrockart #sofiaandshaznotjusttravel #sofiaandshaz #sofiaandshaznotjusttravel #specialoffer #loveholidaywithsofia
