DRAKENSBERGS

The Drakensberg mountain range is the highest in Southern Africa, rising up to nearly 3,500 meters and straddling the border between South Africa and Lesotho. 

It houses rock art - more than 20,000 paintings - which is thought to be many thousands of years old. 

A degree of recognition of the area's importance was in the UNESCO listing (2000) of a South African area in the park as a World Heritage Site.
