The Central Berg extends from Cathedral Peak in the north to Giants Castle in the south and contains the highest density of Bushman rock art sites in the whole Drakensberg. From a tourism point of view, it is also the most developed with luxury hotels, timeshares, campsites and a residential development.

From the north; the Cathedral Peak Mountain Reserve (15,000 acres) incorporates several major peaks in a spur from the main escarpment. Didima Gorge is a treasure trove of Bushman rock art. Mike's Pass winds 2000ft in 6 miles to the summit of the Little Berg for impressive views of the whole range.

Monks Cowl and Champagne Valley is the most developed area in the Drakensberg.

Injasuti - From the Zulu meaning 'well fed dog' due to it's previous abundance of game is still remote for those who want to get away from city life. Near the camp is Battle Cave where San rock art depicts a huge battle between two Bushman tribes.

Giant's Castle - From the profile of this portion of the Berg which is similar to a prone man. The reserve is one of the earliest conservation areas in Africa. Under one of the overhangs above the Bushman's River there is a museum depicting the Bushman way of life.
