Cobham - Southern Drakensberg

Cobham situated in the Southern Drakensberg is a haven for hikers, being just the perfect setting for hiking in the Drakensberg. Weaving a scenically splendid path through the foothills of the Drakensberg, the trail takes hikers through a rich variety of indigenous flora (mainly forest and grassland), passing through one of the most beautiful parts of southern Africa. Breathtaking views extend far across the mountain peaks and crests. The full distance of some 60 km takes five days and nights, starting near the Sani Pass Hotel (on the Sani Pass) and ending at Bushman's Nek. Shorter options are available.

Cobham - Southern Drakensberg Hiking

Cobham, a haven for hikersThe main Cobham hiking route is indicated by white footprints.
