The Giants Cup trail is the only established trail in the Drakensberg. It is 60km in length and is normally completed in 5 days, staying in 4 different mountain huts. They are rustic but 3 are equipped with the luxury of hot showers! This is an ideal hike for beginners.
The Giants Cup Trail runs southwards along the foothills of the southern Drakensberg from Sani Pass to Bushman's Nek through 3 different areas: Cobham, Garden Castle and Bushman’s Nek.The path is clearly marked except for some points where extra attention is required. A hiking map of the area is indispensable. It can be self-guided but the company of knowledgeable professional mountain guide is invaluable.
