World Heritage site, the Drakensberg is stunningly beautiful throughout, and the Royal KZN National Park specifically, has some of the best mountain scenery in all of Africa. It is a massive curved rock wall of five km long and about 500m high, known as the Amphitheater.
Thendele camp is well run by KZN Wildlife. It right in front of this natural masterpiece and the chalets of the upper camp each has this view. Thendele is accurately described as one of the most stunning settings in South Africa. The camp is situated below the sandstone cliffs of Dooley, among yellow-wood forests and protea savannah. Visitors can often hear the rumble of boulders in the Tugela river below after a summer thunderstorm. The Amphitheatre changes its mood with weather and season. Often covered in snow in winter and with up to eighteen waterfalls cascading down the vertical cliffs after a storm, Thendele is a very special place.
The new name for the national park is uKahlamba Drakensberg Park. We also use the older name as well as this is how it is still known worldwide.
There are 2, 4 and 6 bed thatched self catering chalets. There is also a campsite in the reserve. It is appropriate for all ages as those who are not mobile can relax with the friendly guinea fowl and the view while others hike.
