( including a stop for breakfast along the way). Upon arrival, we sort out the hiking gear and take in the great veiws. We aim to start hiking by 12pm. The hike today is easy. We cover about 4km taking 2 hours. Our humble abode for the evening is Shermans cave. One we arrive in the cave, we settle down for the evening. We will prepare dinner for you. A really scrumptious Drakensberg meal. We then tuck you into your sleeping bag with a teddy bear and a bedtime story.

    Day 2: Shermans Cave to the summit of Cathedral Peak

    Stop At: Cathedral Peak, Natal Drakensberg Park, Kokwane South Africa
    We will wake you up at 5:30am with a nice cup of coffee and a ping pong ball. We will get breakfast ready and be ready to hike by 7am. The hike today is long. We aim to get you to the summit of Cathedral Peak (3,004m). The hiking distance today is about 14km with an altitude gain of just over 1000m. The most challenging part is the last section. There is a bit of scrambling and climbing on some exposed parts of the cliff to the summit. Nothing technical and we do put up safety lines for added safety. As we said...not technical, just exposed. So if you are afraid of heights, you have the option to wait at the plateau just below the summit. We aim to be on the summit by 1pm. The views are just epic!! on a clear day you will be able to see the entire northern and central Drakensberg mountain range. We should be back in Sherman cave again by 5pm. Then its dinner and chill time.
