The mountains reach a height of 3,482 metres (11, 424 ft) and

are home to numerous gorgeous hotels, resorts,

chalets, cabins and holiday accommodation.

A breath of fresh air to stressed city dwellers who flock to

absorb the majestic beauty of the mountains and unspoilt scenery.

Also home to some 299 recorded bird species.

The mountains cover the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal,

Lesotho, Swaziland, Mpumalanga and end in

Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province.

  1. Thanks for giving me pause to do some exploring. I caught a panoramic view of Cathedral peak. Gorgeous! (I safaried in Madikwe in 2009) Interesting to see which animals live in a mountainous region of your country…since I come from a mountainous province in Canada – near Banff. Whereas our lynx, cougar and mountain lion do inhabit mountain terrain, it seems the African felines are prone to warmer climes.
