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.
A three day, two nights hike starting at Injisuthi Camp. Each day of this circular route has its own unique views and hiking challenges.
Day one to Centenary is a testing 10.5km to Centenary Hut, wake up the next morning to a stunning sunrise. Day 2 is the day without paths, a steep downhill and then a small climb near the end. Hiking sticks for the downhill are highly recommended.
Day three is up and over a valley and then back down to Injisuthi camp with some of the best views of the Drakensberg. Its a 3 days you will forever remember.
I did a similar route, recently, but in reverse, and was interested to see how you dropped off the contour path to LIC. A very direct, downhill route I see! I took a more miandering, uphill route in the opposite direction. What are your thoughts about going up an over from LIC to Marble Baths, rather than back down the river valley? Thank you
