An Extreme Drakensberg Hike with Drakensberg Hiker is typically a hike which lasts over 6 days, sometimes as many as 14 days, and requires a significantly high level of fitness. Extreme Drakensberg Hikes cover a variety of gradients and terrains, over extended distances, over 100km.  The gradients are significant on an Extreme Drakensberg, and include very steep ascents and descents.  We usually remain at about 3400m for most of the hike. We do not follow well-delineated footpaths, and the trail can sometimes be ... challenging. We walk at a comfortable pace, but often we need to go significant distances over quite difficult patches.
