guiding head

Have the unique opportunity to be within the dramatic and majestic World Heritage Site, the uKhahlamba Drakensburg or the Barrier of Spears.

This is a must see for anybody who is visiting South Africa. The adventures include:

  • Hiking Trips and day trips from a base. With the equipment and transport provided for groups up to 6, the adventurer will be safely guided from the beautiful little burg, and up between huge spires and over narrow passes leaving a sea of clouds below.
  • For rock climbers with some experience (max 2 people) we can safely help them fulfil their dreams to stand on the summit of one of the Drakensburg’s sheer sided free standing towers. This will introduce them to what climbing is all about. Pure adventure, multi-pitch trad in a semi alpine environment.
