Looking for an alternative and more romantic way to explore the Drakensberg Mountains in Luxury?
The idea of this Slackpacking or ‘Glamping’ experience means that you still get 3 incredible days of hiking with the added bonus of breath-taking views , luxury accommodation, good food and of course….a few relaxing massages in the spa just for good measure.. The hiking routes cover some the main attractions in the Drakensberg from the Tugela Falls, Amphitheatre and Royal Natal National Park.
