The Drakensberg is a wild and lonely land of mountains. There exists a fair network of trails near the base of the range along the South African side. There are even a few ‘trails’ that snake up to the rim of the Escarpment itself, but these tend to be frail affairs that have the nasty habit of disappearing at times. This magnificent outdoor venue offers one of Africa’s best outdoor adventures - the Drakensberg Traverse - a multi-day affair which will take you over and along some of the best terrain the range has to offer. It is a range best visited in the company of someone else whom has prior personal experience with these mountains. In the process of making my own personal Drakensberg traverse, I found that experience with Peak High Mountaineering. Peak High’s founder and main leader, Gavin Raubenheimer, is Mr. Mountain down here in South Africa. He has been running Peak High for over a decade now. He is a past president of the KZN section of the Mountain Club of South Africa and the rescue leader whom even the South African Air force turns to for education. Gavin is very personable, with a mother lode of experience and normally leads most Peak High trips, whether they be Drakensberg traverse, ice-climbing in the Giant’s Castle area or ultra tock routes on the many towers and peaks found along the Escarpment. His business continues to grow and he has taken on a new young associate, Colin McCoy, whom he has helped train. Together they will keep you out of trouble and let you gain a great mountain experience. I recommend this pair of climbers to help you very heartily.
