We have it all right here in South Africa, most of it in
KwaZulu-Natal, our lovely home province. We specialise
in overland tours and hikes in KwaZulu-Natal and the mountain
kingdom of Lesotho. We'd like to share South Africa with you,
and invite you to add on to your hike in the Drakensberg with
a wilderness trail or a 4x4 overland tour up Sani Pass; the
only road access to Lesotho from KwaZulu-Natal and around the
Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.
Drakensberg Hiker will arrange a partially or fully portered hike
in the Drakensberg of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and best of all
... we will do your catering and cook your meals for you! No
more getting to the end of a hard day's hiking and having to cook
a meal in your tiny tent. Now you can relax in our large
"mess tent" with your fellow hikers and enjoy a meal cooked for
you prior to turning in for a good night's sleep!
You can also consider rounding off your hike with a tour our
beautiful province, including a wilderness trail in
Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve or a tour of Lesotho, so make sure
you look at our Wilderness
page and the 4x4 Tours of Lesotho and up Sani Pass
