The Drakensberg mountains and Natal Midlands offer a wide range of walking, slack packing and hiking trails – from the easy strolls around the many resorts, to strenuous hikes to the summit. Waterfalls, rivers, magnificent vistas and places of beauty and solitude are all there, just waiting for you to don your walking shoes (or hiking boots!) and explore.
This might have started out as a Drakensberg hiking trail website but has become more of a collection of slack packing trails around South Africa. Still the Drakensberg holds a very close place to my heart and although there are lots of magnificent slack packing trails few hold the magnificent drama of the Drakensberg Mountains.
If you are adventurous, discerning, independently-minded and looking for day or multi-day walking, hiking and trekking – you have come to the right place. Particularly if you like me enjoy hiking trails in comfort.
We can help you book these trails or refer you to the best person to manage that. Sometimes these things a just better arranged yourself and sometimes its better to have someone in the know assist you. Do it through us and generally you will not be mixed with other groups and individuals unless by special request.
We also design tailor made hiking trails which do do arround your expectations and your group’s aspirations, interests and fitness levels. We design an itinerary specially for you, we don’t fit you into an itinerary – so you get exactly what you want. As far as possible, we will guide you into places uncompromised by tourism.
If you discover any trials that I have missed please let me know. I love to hike especially slack packing trails and am almost always up to try a new slack packing trail this coming weekend.
