researching the Drakensberg

I’m off to South Africa. By the weekend you’ll find me at Amphitheatre Backpackers in the northern ‘berg.


My only guidebook, so far, is Cicerone Walking in the Drakensberg by Jeff Williams.

That hostel provides a hiker’s shuttle to Royal Natal National Park.

  2. Enjoy! I was there quite a few years ago, too long to remember any specific recommendations. I can just remember there was a thunder storm over the Amphitheatre when I was there and it was spectacular! also remember two eagles soaring over the cliffs! Have a great trip!

  3. We used this same guide book, Cicerone, for our trip 2 years ago and thought it informative and accurate.
    We did several day hikes in the area, Thukela Gorge was probably my favorite, mostly because it was a gorgeous morning.
    Although walking through the fog and then having it suddenly lift was also a hightlight.
    Have a great trip. I look forward to reading about what you discover.
