3 Highest Peaks In South Africa.
You too can summit the 3 highest peaks in South Africa in just one hike!
As a result, this is a popular hike for most people and is in a beautifully remote part of the Drakensberg. Namely the Champagne Castle. and Injisuthi areas.

We start off on our hiking adventure at Monks Cowl car park and head off for 5 days into the mountains.
On the way, we pass the Spinx and then enjoy our lunch at Blind Mans Corner. This is just below the huge Cathkin Peak. After lunch we walk along the contour path to camp at Keith Bush camp at the base of Grays pass. Here we are completely surrounded by mountains looming over 1000m above us.
The next day is spent walking up Grays Pass.
Once on top we check out the Vultures retreat and camp near a beautiful clear Drakensberg mountain stream. Please check out my video of this hike here.

On day 3 we start ticking off peaks on our trek to summit the 3 Highest Peaks in South Africa. First of all is Champagne Castle. It is 3377m above sea level and is the 3rd highest peak in South Africa. From Champagne Castle, we can see all the way North to the Devils Tooth at the Amphitheatre and South past Giant’s Castle.
Camping below the Trojan wall at Injasuthi on our way to Mafadi the highest peak in South Africa
After taking some time to enjoy these great views we wander on to camp near Leslie’s pass on our way to summit Mafadi on day 4.
We walk up a ridge and end up being the highest people in South Africa for a while. After taking some stunning photos we stroll over to Injisuthi dome 700m away. This is the 2nd highest peak in SA at 3410m above sea level. From here it is all down hill for lunch near Judges Pass. Then down Judges pass where we camp again near another beautiful Drakensberg mountain stream. This time looking up at the huge cliffs way above.
Here the sun rises are ‘out of this world’ as they shine on the huge cliffs above us.
Finally, we have to leave the mountains and walk to our cars at the Injasuthi Camp. This is done walking along one of the most beautiful valleys in the Drakensberg.
