Africa is a magical place! Filled with a myriad of animals, flora and stunning vistas. A melting pot of different cultures and wilderness areas all combine to provide visitors with a unique and exhilarating experience. A warm campfire, under a plethora of sparkling stars, with the sounds of the African bush all around, is something that will stay with you for a lifetime! It feeds the soul and keeps you coming back for more…
THE UKHAHLAMBA-DRAKENSBERG NATIONAL PARK
The Drakensberg mountain range offers up an incredible array of sights and activities. It runs for over 350km north to south, giving this National Reserve it’s very apt name, Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg National Park. Translated, it means ‘The barrier of spears’, referencing the towering peaks on the eastern escarpment of the range, the highest in Southern Africa. The name was declared when the reserve gained UNESCO world heritage status, mainly due to the unique fauna and flora of the region and the historical footprint left by the Bushmen (San) people of Southern Africa, with some 50 000 rock art sites found throughout the Berg.
Nature abounds throughout the mountain range and many species of bird, animal, and plant can be viewed and enjoyed. A lot of them, especially bird and plant you can find nowhere else!
Below we have listed a few set tours to the different regions of the Drakensberg, namely the northern, central and southern ‘Berg’. We have designed these so that you can take any of them as stand-alone tours or combine them together to form an even greater experience. The Drakensberg is such an iconic destination with 100’s of things to do and see, so feel free to contact us and we will be happy to tailor the perfect package for you…
Endless Summer Outdoor Safari and Tour Operator
Endless Summer Tours was first established as an outdoor safari and tour operator, in 2005 by Rhys Scott-Dawkins and Anthony Cox, as a closed corporation (cc no. 2005/077782/23) in South Africa, KZN, Durban. Starting from very humble beginnings, with just a website and a small home office, we have expanded the company year after year to the successful enterprise it is today. We have since taken on an accounting firm and are now VAT registered. We have taken on a bunch of new dynamic staff, with a dedicated afternoon reservations clerk and young enthusiastic guides. During our very busy periods, we make use of a number of free-lance guides who understand and execute the standards we have set out for our operation. We would classify ourselves as an out-door safari tour operator, in Africa you have to do it outside!
We are a member of both our provincial and local tourism authorities, KZN and South Coast Tourism respectively. We also have road transport permits for our entire fleet of tour vehicles and all our guides have Professional Driving Permits. Our insurance covers passenger liability of 5 million or 1 million per seat. Below is more info on our members, and their respective qualifications.

Before entering this vibrant and exciting industry, he cut his teeth traveling the world for several years. Visiting more than 20 countries between 2000 and 2005. Having seen a fair bit of the world, and experiencing tourism first hand, it was a natural progression from being a tourist to becoming a tour guide and business owner in the industry.
Anthony first studied to become an adventure guide, before completing his NQF level 4 guiding to become a provincial guide. His love of nature and people, combined with a strong determination to showcase our beautiful country, made for the perfect mix. Helping him to become a passionate and competent tour guide. With over 20 000 hours of guiding under his belt, he has covered many different tour types, from cultural to surfing, wildlife, and hiking.
Living in such an amazing place has allowed Anthony to follow his passion for tourism, which has opened up other avenues of the industry.
