[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Amphitheatre is one of the geographical features of the Northern Drakensberg, South Africa and part of Royal Natal National Park. It is over 5 kilometres in length and has precipitous cliffs rising thousands of feet along its entire length. The distance from the bottom of the valley floor to the highest point of the amphitheatre is more than 6000 feet (the summit being over 10000 feet above sea level). The Tugela Falls, the world's second tallest falls, plunge over 3110 feet (948m) from the Amphitheatre's cliff tops.
