Sentinel Peak Car Park near the Drakensberg Amphitheatre
South Africa

The Sentinel Car Park near Witsieshoek Lodge offers the ideal base for hikers. From here hikers can head arround the Sentinel Peak (visible in this 360 degree photo), and up the chain ladder to the flat plateau above. From there one can walk arround the top of the Amphitheatre, view the Tugela Falls, the worlds second highest falls, and Mount-Aux-Sources which is the source of 5 rivers!

    The road right now is passable in a car but in places you must be careful and slow. It costs R25 per person at the gate on the way up and R 50 at the parking lot to do the hike.

    Want to drive here and leave my car here to do the ampitheatre day hike. Anyone know if the drive is okay for most cars and if there is a fee to enter the trails/park? Thanks

    More About Africa

    Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
