Drakensberg Northern Traverse Hike Report. The Drakensberg Northern Traverse hike report is about an incredible 6 day hike we did from the Sentinel at the Amphitheatre to finish at Cathedral peak hotel. This time we hiked at the end of April and the weather was the best ever. Check here for pictures of our hike. But first we camped at Sterkfontein dam. I love doing this as it breaks the long drive and we [...]

Mnweni Hike Report. Mnweni is a tribal area found in the Northern Drakensberg between Royal Natal and Cathedral peak. It is my favorite part of the Drakensberg mostly because I think the cliffs are most impressive but also because not many people come to hike here. There are a lot of amazing and wild passes and valleys to explore but this time we walked up Ntonjelana pass to visit Easter cave, and it was [...]

Amphitheatre Hike Report So John from Australia had hiked with me before and loved the Drakensberg. Of course he had to come again but with 12 Australians this time. We picked them up in Johannesburg and drove down to stay the night at Sungubala. What a lovely place. Great to relax after a long flight. Anyway next day my good friend Cindy took them for a walk in the Cavern property to check out [...]

The 3 highest peaks in Southern Africa. I must admit that I hadn't given much thought to sumitting the 3 highest peaks in Southern Africa. But then Stuart from the UK emailed me and asked "what were the chances of organizing this trip?" What a great idea. I hadn't gone to Emlembe in Swaziland/Eswatini the country is now called. Unfortunately I still haven't gone to Emlembe as my good friend Geoff of Pizzology fame [...]

Sentinel to Mnweni Hike Report. Here is my Sentinel to Mnweni hike report that a bunch of us did in March 2019. The day started off with us driving to our camp at Sterkfontein dam. This is a beautiful dam in the Free state with stunning views looking towards the Drakensberg. It is also the 2nd biggest dam in South Africa and is actually fed by water from the Tugela river in KwaZulu Natal. [...]
