Drakensberg Southwest
lies around 400km inland from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa.

This area should not be confused with the main Drakensberg areas of Kwa-Zulu Natal, which are much more commonly combined in trips.

This particular area encompasses the extreme southern end of the 1000km mountain range, where it wraps around the southern side of Lesotho, running down to the Little Karoo landscapes of the Eastern Cape.

It is an area of remote Victorian villages and sheep stations set in inaccessible passes, the best known of which is the village of Rhodes, a perfectly preserve 1890 settlement largely abandoned by its inhabitants and restored relatively recently to provide guest accommodation. Electricity only arrived just before the start of the millennium.

We are very rarely asked to include this area in trips, it is simply too far off the beaten track. Most of the accommodation is aimed squarely at the backpacker and domestic markets.

We presently have no recommended accommodation in this area.
