The Drakensberg is a beautiful place but because of it's altitude, can catch the hiker unawares.

While there are many leisurely walks in the Drakensberg, do not attempt to hike in the high Drakensberg without being reasonably fit and having adequate protection.

What may be a perfectly sunny day can deteriorate in a very short time into low temperatures, high winds and blinding rain or impenetrable mist. Snow has fallen on the Drakensberg every month of the year. Make sure that whatever the month, you have a warm coat and sturdy hiking shoes.

Finally, make sure you sign the Mountain Register at your resort or Ezemvelo Wildlife camp from which you start the climb.
