A vacation in the Drakensberg Region puts you in a World Heritage-listed mountainous wilderness, where painted rock art remains as the legacy of the San people, or Bushmen. The region's name comes from Dutch and means "mountains of dragons," because the tips of the mountains form the scales of legendary European monsters believed to reside there. Things to do in Drakensberg include hiking various trails through the cliffs, camping in ancient caves, and outdoor activities such as rappelling, rock climbing, and ice climbing in winter--just be sure you register with the mountain rescue service.
