Welcome to Giants Castle

Giants Castle

Giant's Castle Nature Reserve lies in the central region of the Drakensberg Mountains. There are grassy fields, streams, and waterfalls dotted among the peaks and valleys of the reserve, which is home to eland, bearded vulture, and other animals. There are plenty of hiking trails and mountain climbing paths through the stunning scenery, but the biggest draw of Giant's Castle is the San rock art visible in the caves. Knowledgeable tour guides and the Giant's Castle Main Caves Museum will give you insight into the lives of these enigmatic people.

Information & Facts

South Africa has 11 official languages, including Afrikaans, English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. English is widely spoken.

South Africa's currency is the Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and the larger hotels. ATMs are widely available (there is a daily limit for cash withdrawals) and major international credit cards are widely accepted, except in petrol stations where cash is required. Visitors should be vigilant when drawing cash from ATMs, as con artists are known to operate there. Travellers cheques and some foreign currencies are accepted at larger hotels and shops, but commission is charged, otherwise all commercial banks will exchange them.
