We ran a feature of seven posts highlighting the seven key headings to the Minimum Impact - Leave No Trace environmental principals applicable to the Maloti-Drakensberg Park.
Plan ahead & prepare, travel & camp on durable surfaces, dispose of waste properly, leave what you find, minimise camp fire impacts, respect wildlife and be considerate of other visitors. Please follow these guidelines when visiting the Maloti-Drakensberg Park and surrounds.
Have you ever been on a hike or looking at the Drakensberg mountains from the luxury of a Hotel or Chalet and wondered which peak you are looking at?
You are in luck, the PeakFinder App will show you the names of all the mountains and peaks with a 360° panorama display and functions completely offline!
We have tested the app on our hikes, it works... The app costs R62.99 and is worth every cent.
More details about the app, how it works and to add it to your phone can be found here.
Bannerman Hut and Bannerman Pass Circular Route
This memorable hike was done by Hélène Riviere and three friends who flew out to our beautiful Drakensberg mountains from France earlier this month.
Hélène and her friends were able to plan their entire trip from the hike report and used DrakensbergHikes.com to find all the information necessary to make a booking at Giants Camp and for Bannerman Hut. Thank you Hélène for the pictures you sent us of your hike.
