Drakensberg, or Dragon Mountains.

Drakensberg, the main mountain range of Southern Africa. The Drakensberg rises to more than 11,400 feet (3,475 metres) The Drakensberg is part of the Great Escarpment and separates the high plateaus of the South African interior from the lower lands along the coast.

An awe-inspiring and truly magnificent range of mountains, the majority of which lie in KwaZulu Natal and stretch well over 200 kilometres forming a natural border between Lesotho and KwaZulu Natal. It extends roughly northeast to southwest for 700 miles (1,125 km) parallel to the south-eastern coast of South Africa. Rock and cave art several thousands of years old have been found in the range.

The Photos are of a region towards the southern parts of KwaZulu Natal..
