The Drakensberg is one of South Africaâ€™s most outstanding attractions, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors annually to its scenic beauty, crisp mountain air and crystal clear waters.
In the middle of this beautiful area is the Winterton Museum. It was officially opened in 1993 by Sheila Henderson and is certainly worth a visit.
This is a community museum and represents living history, telling a story of the people in the area â€“ past and present. Everyone is there: the people from the early and late Stone Age, Iron Age, the San, the people who fled from Shakaâ€™s invading armies during the Mfecane, the first white people, the Voortrekkers and early English settlers. Part of the joy of this museum is that you can walk out into the street and meet a descendant of one of the folk whose photographs you saw inside.
