The Drakensberg and Natal Midlands from a pet friendly perspective

If you are planning for a pet friendly holiday in the Drakensberg or Natal Midlands then this is the perfect resource for you. There are many pet friendly accommodation options in the Drakensberg but there are many that are not suitable. Accommodation that is pet friendly would mostly provide lovely space to take you dog for walks. This is pretty much something that you need to consider as pets are not allowed into the KwaZulu Natal National Parks. This means that you need to have some options if you take you dog with you on holiday.
