What you'll do

We'll drive through the picturesque South African countryside on our way from the city of Durban to the Southern Drakensberg mountains. Once in the mountains, we’ll hike 14km to a hidden sandstone cave, stopping on the way for a dip in cool mountain waters or to see ancient rock art. We'll camp in the Cobham Nature Reserve, then hike down the rugged Gxalingenwa river valley back to the car.

Justin

I am a qualified hiking guide who is registered with KZN Tourism and have been exploring the Drakensberg for the last 10 years. The Drakensberg is my passion and I really enjoy introducing new as well as experienced hikers to the wonderful wilderness we have so close to Durban. I only take small groups and will always be on hand to assist and guide you to the best of my abilities. I am a trained adventure guide, specialising in mountain walking. I also have a valid first aid certificate. My vehicle is registered and insured to carry tourists and I have all the basic hiking gear needed to get you out into the mountains.
