All though I started hiking from very early on, Berg Adventures was only established in 2015. Our main aim is to share the love of the Drakensberg and hiking with like minded people.
Berg Adventures offers professional guiding in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Okhahlamba Drakensberg Mountain Range and KZN Midlands. Trips are usually multi-day hikes into the High Berg or could be just an overnight trip for first time hikers, wanting to experience hiking for the first time. We have a range of standard trips to choose from or we can tailor make a hiking trip to suit your needs.
Be assured that you are in very capable hands during your trip into the Drakensberg as I hold the following qualifications:
Registered with the National Department of Tourism (KZN 1945).
MDT (Mountain Development and Training Trust) accredited for advanced mountain walking leadership (1611)
Level 3 First Aid with Wilderness first aid
So why do I need a Guide?
Paths are not always marked and disappear easily in the vegetation, so good map reading skills is needed if you are going on your own. Single hikers are not encouraged to hike on their own due to the remoteness of the area. Rescue takes a lot of time due to isolated hiking areas and the few huts that are available are only a shelter – nothing is supplied in the hut.
