Subject matter of the bushman rock art includes animals like the revered eland antelope, human figures and therianthropes (metamorphosis from human to animal). Among the most accessible Drakensberg rock art sites is the open-air Bushman Cave Museum in the Giant's Castle Reserve, established in 1903 and run by KwaZulu-Natal Nature Conservation. A short walk takes you to the cave, which features 500 rock paintings, some of which are estimated to be around 800 years old.
At Kamberg in the Southern Drakensberg, it's worth taking a guided hike to Game Pass Shelter – a return hike takes around 3hours. Without a doubt these will be the best examples of bushman rock art you will encounter.
Nearby Royal Natal National Park offers an easy walk along the upper reaches of the Tugela River, starting from the park visitors' centre and heading into the Sigubudu Valley, to reach some of the rarest San paintings in the Drakensberg. The rock art here is mostly not very impressive
The Drakensberg has many unmapped rock art sites and you will need a rock art hiking guide to be able to appretiate some of these treasures
Apart from its rich repository of Bushman art to be found in caves and overhangs, the Drakensberg is home to endemic wildlife including buck species, baboons and raptors.
