So we just completed our first Berg hike a week or two back - Marble Baths Cave sleep over.
It was fairly horendous. We were under the impression, based on a coment somewhere on this forum, that it would be a great over night trip to take toddlers on, so we presumed that as adults and teenagers it should be fine for our first hike. Lets just say, I think im still sore two weeks later!
We decided to put it down as a terific learning curve. And to that person who said its fine, even for toddlers to do… dude… your toddler is very, very impressive!
So, for our next one to make sure I dont put my kids off hiking for life, I decided it would be better to do a day hike in the Berg and then sleep over at a camp before driving back to Durban the next day.
Any good suguestion of a day hike (12-17km-ish) with a camp site base attached - in the Drakensberg?
(PS: Marble baths hike was totally beautiful but just too strenuous with a 18kg pack, and for our first hike)
