The Drakensberg is the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, rising to 3,482 metres in height. Its geological history lends it a distinctive character amongst the mountain ranges of the world. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia. The Drakensberg mountains span the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mpumalanga and end in Tzaneen in Limpopo Province.
Drakensberg usually also refers to the region in the northwest of KwaZulu-Natal ranging from Underberg and the Sani Pass in the south to Royal Natal National Park in the north, including areas which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List, mostly in the central region around Champagne Valley (the most popular area with an abundance of accommodation, restaurants, shops and activities) and immediately north and south (including Giant's Castle and Cathedral Peak).
