A World Heritage Site

The Drakensberg is a special World Heritage Site. It received this accolade on two counts. Firstly, as it is the wold's most significant repository of San Rock Art. There are some 3000 examples of San Rock Art and 665 shelters that contain these frescos in the Drakensberg. Secondly, due to its unique Fauna and Flora. For example, the endangered Lammergeier or Bearded Vultureis only found in the Drakensberg in South Africa. Additionally, the endangered Cape Vulture, Wattled Crane and the Yellow-breasted Pipit. Three hundred and fifty of the 1800 known plant species in the Drakensberg are unique. Ten vertebrate species are endemic as well. 

The Drakensberg is also one of the best examples of an erosional mountain. This escarpment has the highest peaks in South Africa. Often exceeding 3000 m. Mafadi, being the highest peak on the South African side of the Drakensberg at 3 450 m. The Drakensberg erodes back by some two mm every ten years.


Additionally, it is one of the most important sources of water in South Africa. This is certainly the case with the province of KwaZulu-Natal. It also supplies the province of Gauteng with most of its water. Furthermore, it has the largest concentration of hiking trails in South Africa. It is regarded as a centre for adventure pursuits. Some key examples being mountaineering, trail running, mountain biking, hot air ballooning, white river rafting and zip-lining.

Finally, it is the home of the internationally renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir School. This school is one of the most important 'ambassadors' for South Africa.
