The Drakensberg

The Drakensberg is the highest mountain range in South Africa. It is about 3,482 metres in height. This is almost as high as Mt. Fuji. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.

The Drakensberg mountains cover the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mpumalanga, and end in Tzaneen in Limpopo Province. In winter, it snows there. It sounds a little strange, because we can see snow in South Africa. I want to visit there one time.
