Covering a total of 32,000 hectares, Cathedral Park Nature Reserve is considered to be a paradise for hikers. It is home to the Didima Valley, known for its prime examples of San Rock Art. Bordering on the Monks Cowl, the Thukela area and Lesotho, Cathedral Park Nature Reserve is a part of the world heritage site, Maloti-Drakensberg Park.
If you are looking for challenging hiking trails in the Drakensberg mountain range, Cathedral Peak Natural Reserve is just the place for you. Drakensberg mountain ranges are a habitat for many plants and animals that can only be found in this region. When you visit the Cathedral Park Nature reserve you should expect more than a glimpse of bearded vultures, Malachite sun birds and other exquisite birds, as well as baboons.
The Mike Pass offers a scenic view of the surrounding lowlands and Little Berg peak which overlooks the Didima Gorge. This is a good breakaway for those who are not as adventure minded. Please note that hikers need to register with the park office before setting off.
