Description  Planning on doing Kilimanjaro but not sure if your kit works?

Looking for a short trip that`s not too strenuous but still want to get into the high Drakensberg?

Pushed for time but still looking for a true wilderness experience?

Try the Amphitheatre for size. Enjoy the incredible views of the Northern Drakensberg. Hike from the Sentinel Car Park up the airy chain-ladder and on to Tugela Falls. Chain Ladder

Choose either a two-day or a three-day route. Perhaps bag a few peaks along the way, such as Mt Aux Sources, Crow`s Nest, Mt Amery and some others. Tailor the route to suit your needs.

Daily distances are in the vicinity of 15-20 km with a mean altitude 3000m. Regardless of the season you stand a good chance of experiencing the awe of Drakensberg weather - icy cold in winter, incredible thunderstorms during summer.
