The Drakensberg mountains, South Africa

The Drakensberg mountains run for a distance of 700 miles. Despite the fact that the width varies, this is still a huge area. Much of this area will have human encroachment, whether through hiking or business interests which might threaten wildlife more.

The large animals most commonly seen in the Drakensberg are the Eland – a giant antelope, Mountain Reedbuck, Grey Rhebuck and Oribi. Jackal, Genet and Civet are not uncommon. Baboons are found throughout the mountain areas, with Vervet monkeys found at lower altitudes.
