In the High Drakensberg region of Lesotho Africa, the adventures are endless. No real trails, no real worries (well maybe keep everything inside your tent at night).
Under the shadow of the Wall of Spears, Dragon Mountains, or Drakensberg, the alpine grasslands ebb and flow like the bushveld so commonly found there. Wildlife abounds in the big sky country of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and the night sky is one of the most dazzling that can be found on Earth.
This gallery is a series of shots from the Drakensberg lowlands around the area in which I lived for three months. The nearest towns would be Winterton or Bergville, but most of my time was spent in the bush or in unmarked farmland. Enjoy.
