Drakensberg – Injisuthi to Cathedral Peak Pt. 2

Day 5 By Day 5 we had found our legs and become used to the altitude. The fantastic conditions of the day before had put a bit of a spring in my step, which was just as well given the […]

Drakensberg – Injisuthi to Cathedral Peak Pt. 1

Just occasionally I bite off more than I can chew and before I know it a hiking trip has become and adventure. Since my first visit a couple of years ago I have fallen in love with the Drakensberg. The […]
