Drakensberg Hikes - Slackpacking

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life when you go hiking with a few close friends and family in an area of unspoilt beauty in the Drakensberg. Our guided Drakensberg hikes explore the lower ‘Berg or we can venture up to the summits of high-altitude peaks.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for both its natural and cultural wonders, Drakensberg mountains are a geological treat with striking scenery, and steep-sided blocks and pinnacles of basalt. There are hundreds of San rock art sites in caves and shelters throughout the range.

Routes for day walks, overnight and multiday hikes in the mountains overlooking Champagne Valley are well trodden, especially the trails in the Lower Berg. In next to no time the words Monk’s Cowl, Cathkin Peak, Champagne Castle and Giant’s Castle will roll off your tongue.

Our hiking options cater to a wide range of hiking fitness & experience. We offer traditional hiking and guided expeditions in the high Berg for serious hikers as well as slackpacking trails and family-friendly day walks at lower heights. We can tailor-make a hiking holiday to suit your group of family and friends.

Dedicate a few days to visit this special area of South Africa. The Drakensberg is a super-sized playground for hikers, climbers, photographers, birders and active families.
