Southern Drakensberg
DID YOU KNOW?

A rich source area, the Southern Drakensberg hosts three of the highest mountains in South Africa. The latest Ramsar site, the uMngeni Vlei can also be found here, while the country's longest free-flowing river, the Mkomazi, starts at this source.

The Southern Drakensberg loses 2.3% of its water to invasive alien trees and while this sounds small, it amounts to a massive 87 billion litres of water per year
