S Grade – Short(ish) Stroll S
Strolls suit anybody who can walk, including some short awkward sections of stream crossing & a few steep gradients. They last one to two hours at very gentle pace. Footwear is whatever is comfortable, with good support and sound tread.

E Grade – Terrain Easy
These walks suit people who wish to enjoy the hills and mountains without much strenuous activity and at a slower pace. Expect three hours’ walking with a maximum of approximately five hours. We recommend walking boots with good ankle support, moulded soles and waterproof, breathable uppers.

  1. Hi,

    I am a student at the University of the Freestate. A few of my friends and I are interested in hiking the Drakensberg Mountains. If you could please assist me with information on longer route/trails which are self-guided, I would appreciate it. Preferably overnight or not less than 6hour trails.


    1. Dear Jescisa

      Many thanks for your enquiry.

      If you could please provide an email address where i can email you more information on self guided long hikes.

      Kind Regards,
