Ever since my first visit to the Mnweni Valley I’ve been planning to return for an extended trip. Finally in the early Drakensberg summer of 2018 I planned a trip and invited a couple of South Africans along, Janik Alheit and Ruan Bekker. My goal was to capture some of the tropical nature of the lower Berg and particular this area, something I ultimately felt like I achieved!
Finally although this makes the narrative particularly non-linear, here are a couple of images from the lightning storm that started our trip ‘with a bang’. Certainly one of the most impressive displays of nature I have seen.
If you’re looking for an adventure photography workshop in the Drakensberg I run tours annually. In October I’ll be taking a group back to the Mnweni. You can read more here: Drakensberg – Wonders of the Mnweni
