Kamberg Nature Reserve forms part of the Maloti- Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site. It is situated centrally in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains. Kamberg Nature Reserve was proclaimed in 1951 and one. This part of the Drakensberg is particularly scenic, with a number of walks throughout the area and some of the best rock art site exist here.
The natural landscape of Kamberg Nature Reserve has many rock shelters, containing San rock paintings. These were created by the San people over a period of at least 4000 years. The rock paintings are outstanding in quality and diversity representing the spiritual life of the San people who no longer live in the region. It is ideally placed for visitors wishing to visit the many other access points in the Drakensberg
Kamberg’s Rock Art Centre deserves a mention. Run by the local Tandela community it offers daily tours that incorporate a relatively easy guided 3.5 km walk to Game Pass Cave (for those who cannot manage the walk, a multimedia centre screens a visual tour of the walk). Waterfall Shelter, a second cave filled with San rock art, is close enough to visit as well. Visitors describe the rock art as vivid, and the tour as impressive.
For rock art enthusiasts the Kranses group of caves, a 12 km round trip, is a highlight. The narrow sheltered rock wall is awash with paintings of eland and some scenes depicting a group of people carrying shields (the San did not use shields and it is likely that these rock art paintings depict the Amazizi who lived peacefully alongside the San).
There is a well maintained dam for flyfishing, and the plentiful waterfalls in the reserve are perfect for mid-morning swims. Weather, as with any stay in the Drakensberg, is variable and you will need to take all-weather clothing.
