When going on a hike please ensure you have a map which can be purchased from most of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife regional reserves or at the head office in Pietermaritzburg.
This guide to Hiking in the Drakensberg may alsobe of assistance especially if your first hike. A list of the caves and phone numbers that can be booked is available hereand an example of the Mountain Rescue Register can be downloaded here.
This was my very first Drakensburg hike when I was 14 and i went with my scout troop. It was an amazing time and very do-able for a bunch of primary school kids so I can imagine that it will be just fine for adults.
