The Gxalingenwa Cave 2 Day Hike is to one of the nicest caves in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg. Our Gxalingenwa Cave 2 day Hike is a wonderful introduction to hiking in the Drakensberg. We still trek up to 6 hours each day so really get to check out the beautiful mountains.
This is an ideal hike for beginners and families, but it is also great for those who just want a Drakensberg Hiking experience. It’s only 2 days so perfect if you don’t have the time for an extended hike. Read here to see how to prepare for your hike with us.
Gxalingenwa Cave is very sheltered, providing some protection from the elements.
We start the hike at Cobham and stroll along a clear footpath for 3 km. while heading up the Emerald stream. As we get to the top of the valley we can see the amazing Pinnacle rock. This rock has bushman paintings so really quite special.
The foothills around Cobham are also full of wild life. We often spot Eland and Reed buck as well Baboons and of course the rivers are great for a quick dip.
