Full description

This is the perfect hike to allow you to get a taste of hiking in the Drakensberg. It is accessible to any reasonably fit person older than 13 years. We depart Durban bright and early when I will pick you up from your accommodation. We will then set off to the Drakensberg(the area will depend on availability) stopping for a refreshment break. The drive is about 3 hours but it will fly by as we meander our way through the hills of KwaZulu Natal. Once we arrive at the mountains, I will provide you with a backpack, warm sleeping bag and sleeping mat. All my gear is top quality. We will divide up all the food, pots etc between us. Expect your pack to weigh between 12-15kgs. The hike to the cave will be roughly 11-14kms but we will take it slow, stopping to enjoy the rivers and scenery. Swimming is great if weather permits. We will arrive at the cave in the mid afternoon and you will be free to relax and explore the vicinity of the cave. In the evening we will cook a hearty dinner, have a few drinks and enjoy each others conversation until the days walking sends us to our beds. In the morning we will wake at our leisure and enjoy some good coffee/tea and breakfast before making our way back to the vehicle.
