Just checked in at Amphitheatre Backpackers in the northern Drakensberg. Superb location. Weather is great for January.
South Africa is incredibly easy to travel staying in hostels like these. Getting around by Baz Bus.
I’m already booked for the essential Amphitheatre trek tomorrow, guided. That takes us to the top of Tugela Falls (Thukela Falls), a total drop of 947 metres.
The day after we’ll take a cultural hike in Lesotho. Or climb Cathedral peak — if enough people sign up. 🙂
