Highmoor Nature Reserve is a smaller more intimate park, compared to many of the other offerings in the Drakensberg, and the drive up has beautiful views of the mountains and river valley below. There are three well-populated trout dams in the area with excellent fly-fishing. Camping is the only option at the site and it is restricted to seven campsites, but note that at an elevation of 2,000 meters, it can get quite cold overnight. The Aasvoelkrantz and Caracal caves are about a two-hour hike from the park office and are available for overnight stays (R30).
