Amphitheatre, Drakensbergen, South Africa

The Amphitheatre is one of the geographical features of the Northern Drakensberg, South Africa, and is widely regarded as one of the most impressive cliff faces on earth. The cliff face of the Amphitheatre is roughly three times the size of the total combined area of all the cliff faces in Yosemite's famous El Capitan, and more than 10 times the size of El Capitan's most famous (South Western) face. It is part of the Royal Natal National Park.


The Amphitheatre is over 5 kilometres in length and has precipitous cliffs rising approximately 4000 feet along its entire length.
