Southern Drakensberg Highlights

Pisaneng River 1 (Panoramic)
  • A less well-known corner of the Drakensberg, where the terrain on the Lesotho side is particularly appealing and offers extensive views of the interior.

  • Strong cultural dimension to the trek: experience the unique mountain culture of the Basotho herders, and experience a home-stay in the traditional mountain settlement of Thamatu

  • Lovely camping situations on rivers dropping down into Lesotho

  • Extensive views over the sandstone buttresses of the Little Berg, considered to be the finest of the entire Drakensberg

  • Lovely finish via over the Devil’s Knuckles, dropping down through lovely Sehlabathebe National Park

  • Supported by Basotho packhorses as opposed to porters.  Self carry trekking a relatively easy alternative

  • Wide choice of base accommodation pre and post trek
