The tour starts off with a visit to Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KwaZulu Natal. There we will stop by Pietermaritzburg's City Hall, which claims to be the largest brick building in the southern hemisphere. There we will visit the Gandhi statue also before we head towards the Drakensberg mountains. Kamberg Cave Art is a 90 minute walk and hike from the base camp. This tour is for the physically fit.

Our destination is the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Drakensberg mountain range. The Kamberg Nature Reserve was created in 1951 because of it its unique natural beauty, wildlife and historical cave rock sites.  The reserve has over 6200 hectors of rolling mountains and deep valleys with an extensive network of hikes and trails. The Walk to the Caves Rock Art Site is over 60 minutes in length from the camp and requires an average level of fitness to complete.  The natural landscape has many rock shelters, containing San rock paintings. These were created by the San people over a period of at least 4000 years. The rock paintings are outstanding in quality and diversity representing the spiritual life of the San people who no longer live in the region.

Next stop will be the small town of Howick to visit its waterfall. KwaNogqaza or Howick Falls is approximately 95 m in height and lies on the Umgeni River. The local Zulu people named it the “Home of the Tall” referring to its height. Next to the falls lies a quaint old section of Howick which has a selection of historical museums and antique stores to visit.  

Next is the Nelson Mandela Capture Site Statue and Apartheid Museum. The Capture Site boasts a large sculpture of Nelson Mandela made up of multiply steel columns which stand between 6 and 9 meters tall. Tourists at the Capture Site are required to stand 35 meters away from the large Nelson Mandela bust for it to come into clear focus. Facing west the impressive sculpture creates a uniquely beautiful landscape for the local Howick community. The museum is dedicated to Nelson Mandela’s life and his struggle against the Apartheid government.
