Event Details

Mnweni is regarded as one of the most scenic, if not most scenic, region in the Drakensberg Mountains. Due to its remoteness it does not receive as much traffic as hikes like Tugela Falls and Cathedral Peak. What we’re saying is that we probably won’t cross paths with another hiking group and will have the whole mountain range to ourselves.

Photo captured by Patrick Richardson while hiking up Mnweni Pass on day 2 of this incredible 3 day hike. The basalt pinnacles you see in the background are the Mnweni Pinnacles, one of Drakensbergs most unique structures.

The Mnweni Circuit Hike covers 46km over a 3 day period with nearly 2000 meters of elevation gain and loss. We rate this hike as moderate in Drakensberg standards. We spend one night sleeping in tents in the valley while the next night is spent in a cave on top of the escarpment, either Ledgers Cave or Mponjwane Cave. Both offer hikers a spectacular view.

The cost for this hike is R3,300 per person and includes:

  • qualified mountain guide and wilderness first responder
  • dinners, breakfasts and hot drinks on the mountain which our team will prepare
  • equipment including 4 season tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, backpacks and eating utensils
  • hiking permits and park fees.
