Take on the 5-mile (8-km) Amphitheatre Cliff hike in South Africa's Drakensberg Mountains on this adventurous tour from Bergville. With a guide, you'll hike to the source of Tugela Falls, considered to be the world's second-tallest waterfall, marveling at the dramatic peaks of Royal Natal National Park. Hike through a gully and along a mountaintop plateau, and then descend the steep cliff face using chain ladders. Lunch is included.

This day hike provides you with some of the Drakensberg’s most impressive and accessible scenery in Royal Natal National Park. The park’s crown jewel is the Amphitheatre, a 5-mile wall of cliffs and canyons, best viewed from both below and up on top. Here, Africa's tallest waterfall—Tugela Falls—drops a whopping 3,100 feet (947 meters) in five stages. Other notable peaks in the area are Devil’s Tooth, the Eastern Buttress, and the Sentinel. 

After hotel pickup in Bergville, you'll travel to trailhead at the Sentinel parking lot, which sits at an altitude of 8,333 feet (2,540 meters). Start hiking the route up the gully, which emerges at Beacon Buttress. Your reward for the steep ascent is a panoramic view of the mountain scenery, including the highest peak of the escarpment, Mont-aux-Sources at 10,768 feet (3,282 meters).

Refuel with lunch at the top of the Drakensberg plateau, at an average elevation of 10,170 feet (3,100 meters), and then start your descent by using the two sets of chain ladders that run down over the sheer rocks. When you reach the bottom, you'll be returned to Bergville.

5-hour gentle to moderate hike through the magnificent Tugela Gorge, protected fields, forest,river and breathtaking view of Tugela Falls from below (viewing of the waterfalls only in summer season). The tour starts and ends at the famous Royal Natal National Park.

Set in a dramatic gorge just 20 minutes’ drive from the company’s reception, this scenic hiking route passes through stretches of protected field and forest. The scenery beyond the Tugela Gorge is rivalled only by the view from the top of the Tugela Falls.

This hike starts at the Royal Natal car park and follows the course of the Tugela River for some 11KM.

The 210 km 14 day Grand Traverse of the Drakensberg is a challenging high altitude trek that traverses the remote and untouched Drakensberg Mountain Range. We trek through wilderness in the Ukhahlamba World Heritage in a Southerly direction. This’ is a difficult trek with long days of hiking through rugged terrain carrying packs; it is a rewarding challenge for experienced hikers whose fitness levels are high and whose mental tenacity is even higher. As difficult as the trek is, the views, total departure from civilization and the pristine mountain environment make this an unforgettable life time achievement. The sources of many rivers are found along the escarpment, so we are never far from clean, clear mountain water. Mountain weather is notoriously fickle, so it’s important to be prepared for hot sunny days, icy nights, snow or anything in between. This is an unparalleled way of experiencing South Africa’s Drakensberg and its views.
