Drakensberg Activities Guide

The Drakensberg offers a range of activities, from hiking and walking in the mountains, to quad biking, swinging trapeze and rafting. The adrenaline junkie and those looking for peaceful tranquility will both find what they are looking for in the Drakensberg activities on offer.

Hiking / walking

The Drakensberg summit offers excellent hiking and climbing opportunities. Long passes to the top reward hikers with outstanding views of the valleys hundreds of metres below. Hikers need to be aware that splendid, clear sunny days can quickly turn into a snowy nightmare: take care… and always complete the mountain register before setting off.

Guided hikes are normally available on a daily basis from most hotels, resorts and parks board camps. Hikes will vary from easy strolls of about an hour to visit close by attractions – to more strenuous all day climbs. For the more energetic and fit there is the challenge to make the demanding but exhilarating climb to the top of the main ‘berg summit!

The summit landscape is covered with grasses and numerous wildflowers… and crystal streams tumbling down the slopes. Do watch out for summer afternoon thunderstorms with their wild lightning… and even in the summer, be prepared for sudden cold weather. Besides your camera, be sure to take a jersey and raincoat.
