Hikes in Mnweni area. This area is commonly referred to as Mnweni. The Amangwane Traditional Authority Area includes Abhulesini, Kohkwane and Manzano.
The Mnweni area of the Drakensberg is not only the most spectacular but also the only part of the range that does not fall within the Maloti-Drakensberg Park. The main valleys of the area - Mnweni, Ntonjelane, Ifidi and Icidi - top out among convoluted spires, turrets, buttresses and other impressive rock formations that give these mountains their reputation as a natural gothic edifice. The valleys, in contrast, offer some of the most sublime mountain scenery in the country. Whatever else you might leave at home, don't forget your camera.
