The Drakensberg Walking Tour encompasses some of the best walking in KwaZulu Natal. The Drakensberg Mountains consist of gigantic basalt peaks and buttresses. Towering sandstone cliffs with hidden valleys, grassy slopes and pockets of indigenous forest supporting a rich diversity of plant life. It offers a superb range of mountain walking.

Our tour offers a diversity of walks – from forest walks, to dramatic river gorges and mountain hikes. We run this tour on a private basis to suit your travel dates with varying prices from 2 people up to 6 people.

Tour Re-imagined

Due to the lack of walking guides in KwaZulu Natal after the Covid pandemic, we have revised this tour slightly. The pricing below is with a private transfer to Cathedral Peak on Day 1. The walking at the hotels is on a private basis and led by the hotel's walking guides. Your private guide then collects you on Day 4 to take you to the Cavern Hotel and is with you until the end of the tour.  However if you would like a guide to accompany from day 1, this is possible - for an additional supplement. However it's not really necessary. Ask us for a quote.

The Base price below is for 4 people. There is no paired back pricing. The Red Carpet price in this option is the price per person if there are only two people travelling.

Tailor-made options:

This Drakensberg Walking Tour in South Africa can be booked in conjunction with our Cape Town & Garden Route Walking Tour to make a two week walking holiday. Alternatively you can add on some time on safari in one of the northern KwaZulu Natal game reserves.
