The Drakensberg is a popular tourist destination; its hiking trails and wildlife reserves are both major South African attractions. Other features of note are the Tugela Falls, the world's second-highest waterfall, and caves within which bushman paintings have been discovered that date back over two thousand years.

Its highest mountain is Thabana Ntlenyana, which rises to 3,482 metres (11,424 ft).
