Kamberg Nature Reserve is within the Natal Drakensberg Park and is situated centrally in the foothills of the mountains. It is therefore ideally placed for visitors wishing to visit the many other access points of the Drakensberg.
Kamberg nestles in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park , its central position ideal for visits to many other well known Berg areas from Lotheni to Giants Castle. Kamberg is a delightful spot in it's own right with three attractive picnic sites near the river and trout dams which provide a relaxing alternative to the scenic attractions of the many well maintained walks in the area.There are a number of self guided trails from the camp , one of which is suitable for handicapped visitors. As well as the Mooi River, trout fishing can also be enjoyed in several dams which are open to anglers, all year round. Close to Kamberg are the trophy trout fishing dams of Highmoor which must be booked in advance. Please enquire at the camp office. Kamberg's trout hatchery is well worth a visit and is open to the public on a daily basis
There is magnificent rock art shelter in Game Pass and there is a guided walk to the area every day. The earliest inhabitants of the Drakensberg were Bushmen. These San people lived in harmony with their environment, taking no more than they needed to survive. Sadly, violent clashes with white settlers and Nguni tribes brought their era to an end and all that remains is their remarkable rock craft. The Bushman rock art at Kamberg is possible the best examples in South Africa
