This Week in Africa…The Drakensberg, South Africa (April 2019)


Sunrise from Sentinel Peak Trail.

The Drakensberg is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment, a geologic formation located in South Africa and Lesotho. The Drakensberg or “Mountains of Dragons” stretch for over 600 mi (1,000 km) and reach their greatest height at 11,424 ft (3,482 m) [1].
