Gliding in the Drakensberg

Here are some photos taken of gliders in the Drakensberg. Soaring conditions in Autumn are really good and, as you can see, the mountains have already had a dusting of snow. The airfield here is at 5,000ft and the Drakensberg range of mountains is on average 10,000ft high. This club is a private club, but there are annual gliding camps held in this area, which are open to visitors.
