Sentinel Peak is a high mountain parking lot at an elevation of 2.545m (8,349ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Free State and KwaZulu-Natal, in South Africa. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
Located in the Drakensberg mountains, the road to the summit is mostly paved, with some rough sections seriously erroded and poor. About 4.5 km (~ 2.8 miles) of the last part of the road is unsealed and in bad shape. After that there’s another 2.5 km of paved road.
The road is 12.8 km long. 4x4 vehicles would be wise. The surface of the road is made out of dirt with small boulders and rocks of varying sizes. The journey offers stunning views of the Pudding; the Dome and the Witches.
