Episode: Drakensberg: Barrier of Spears
The Drakensberg Mountains are Southern Africa's Alps, rising more than 11,000 feet into the sky. But beneath their beauty lies a hostile environment for the creatures that live there. Each spring, drenching rains destroy the grasslands at the base of the mountains, and those who would survive must climb up sheer cliffs, through storms and snow, to reach the carpets of new grass on the plateau.• Visit the Drakensberg: Barrier of Spears webpage
