  • Drakensberg Road Trip: Diary Of A Meander Through The Mountains

    drakensberg road trip By Lesley Stones, 7:00 pm

    I have to admit I was nervous. I have an innate fear of driving, yet I was setting out alone on a Drakensberg road trip, into the mountains in South Africa. The fear’s quite rational – I have absolutely no sense of direction, dreadful night vision, and a low-slung 15-year-old sports car with an aversion to untarred roads, hairpin bends and sheer cliffs. So why was I going? To conquer fears, build self-confidence and gawp at some of the country’s most spectacular scenery, that’s why.
