Drakensberg to Clarens

Drakensberg, one of South Africa’s UNESCO world heritage sites, was another beautiful scenic spot we visited on our tour. The Drifters Log Cabins were very comfortable and full of rustic charm. We had a nice dinner as well. The next day we went for an eight hour mountain hike and I had to say that it was not for me. Thanks to our tourmate Elizabeth, I made it downhill! The scenery was just spectacular and the mountains were similar yet different from the Canadian Rockies. I was glad to be able to test my limits and see this magnificent mountain range. After leaving the Drakensberg, we went to have a closer look at the turquoise colour of the beautiful lake from the Sterkfontein Dam, passed through the Golden Gate National Park with its interesting rock formations before stopping in the artistic small town of Clarens in the Free State.
