The Drakensberg, which translates as the Dragon Mountains, is one of several major mountain systems in the country of South Africa, which stretches along its eastern part, including also the entire states of Lesotho and Eswatini "on its way". The main feature of the range is its highest and most prominent mountain Thabana Ntlenyana (3,482 m / 11,423 ft), which is also the highest peak in this part of Africa, second only to the volcano Meru (4,565 m / 4,977 ft), located north in Tanzania. These mountains are also noted for their rich natural diversity, most of which is concentrated and protected in the area of the eponymous uKhahlamba / Drakensberg Park, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In total there are 4819 named mountains in the Drakensberg.
