Where the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho meets QwaQwa and the Royal Natal National Park , you will find the Sentinel Hiking Trail, your password to breathtaking scenery and awesome adventure in the Drakensberg Mountains.

Hikers can be sure of spectacular sights, such as Devil's Tooth, the Maluti mountains, Drakensberg Amphitheatre, Mount-aux-Sources, Sentinel, Broom Hill and the Mahai Waterfall.

Only the sharper eyed will take note of the shy Protea nubigena. This little pink flower can be found only on the slopes of the Sentinel.
