Scheduled hikes 2016-2017

  If you are interested in joining any of these hikes please contact us. If these dates don't suit you and/or want to do a different hike, let us know and we will add it to this list.



  • January 8-10 (3 days / 2 nights): A hike in the Cathedral Peak Area, similar to the bell traverse, but tenting the first night instead of staying at Roland's Cave. The last day we can choose whether we'll go down the Mlabonja Pass or the Bell Traverse, depending on the group's confidence and the weather conditions. For more pictures of this hike you can visit our blog.
  • January 23-27 (5 days / 4 nights): Northern Drakensberg Traverse - From Sentinel Car Park to Cathedral Peak. This is probably the most spectacular hike you can do in the Drakensberg. It is considered as one of the world's best hikes by National Geographic. For more pictures of this hike you can visit our blog.
