It’s hard! But Worth it! Had to remove our shoes to cross the river! We didn’t reached the top, the rock was wet, too dangerous to try a climb. But still the view at the last pass is beautiful!

Beautiful landscapes, we went a little further than the original record. At the end you can go in the river and there is two small trails. Had to remove our shoes to cross the river (end of April)

Very beautiful, but definitely not ‘moderate’ in difficulty. No challenge if you are looking for a hike that leaves you a bit tired and dirty, but definitely good for a Sunday walk with the family

the waterfall was pretty, but could only view it from the bottom. a lot of the hike is unshaded, so go early!

stunning walk, perfect for a family with younger children

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail last month. It was our last stop in South Africa and well worth the effort getting there. It is not a difficult trail -- quite shorter than the 8 miles stated -- and you do need a good head for exposure while on the ladders. I recommend bringing scree gloves that provide some degree of grip on the metal rungs. There's a gully option you can choose in lieu of the ladders. To me it looked much more difficult. Our guide said it can quickly turn dangerous during a rain. We went during the dry season and we expected Tugela Falls to be be dry. However, anyone wishing to see the falls should remember it is seasonal!

Amazing views all round, slept at the top for a night and it was incredible. Mornings are to die for when the clouds come in.

Amazing amazing hike - as good as it gets! The waterfall is rain based. The road goes all the way to the car park at the trailhead. Caution: It is a VERY rugged road! The elevation of the mountain creates its own weather system - be prepared for sudden rains and "white-outs" even when the weather prediction is for a clear sky. The lodge nearby (witsieshoek) offers lifts to the car park for R100. well worth it...just call them to confirm the still offer the service.

Incredible trail along the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment. One of the best hikes around. The official trail consists of eight unmarked checkpoints but there is so much beautiful scenery that you won't go wrong by going off course. The views from the edge to the Underberg 4,000 feet below are unforgettable. Typically hiked SOBO from the Sentinel Car Park to Bushman's Nek. Fees are required for Royal Natal National Park and Giant's Castle. All hikers should sign the Mountain Rescue Register at their point of entry. Amphitheatre Backpackers is a great stay either before or after your hike.

Absolutely stunning. We went up and down the gully route, which is quite a scramble, but is safe and well marked. The trail is very well maintained, including being paved for the first two miles.

This is a great day hike to do from Thendele. Well marked and not steep. The first few miles is typical Berg hiking up the valley, through open country and a few forests. The hike should really be called the Gorge hike (as its marked in the reserve’s signs), and hiking up the gorge at the end is a must. You pass through the steep-sided gorge, with spectacular views up to Amphitheatre, and can swim in the pools carved in the rock. Watch out of flash floods and speak to the rangers before hiking up the gorge though.

Short walk to the falls suitable for families and includes a swimming hole. Steeper paved walk to the lookout with stunning views. Located in Royal Natal Park. Many other trails for all experience levels available.
