There is a surprisingly large amount of animals and birds found in the Drakensberg mountains. A lot of them are endemic to these wild and beautiful mountains.

Home to nearly 300 recorded bird species, the Drakensberg is one of the best places in South Africa to visit for bird watching.
People come on a trip with Drakensberg Hiker just to see some of these special creatures. Some of the Drakensberg Fauna you are likely to see includes the rare Bearded vulture and Drakensberg Rockjumper.
Also found are specially adapted Klipspringer and the biggest antelope in Africa, the agile Eland.
