Hi guys, it’s lovely to be part of this community!
I am Polish, I live in Cape Town, and have been exploring Western Cape mountains extensively for the last 3 years now. I have travelled through Southern Africa, spending 4 months on the road, hitchhiking and camping everywhere I can. Just love this part of the world!
Next month, I want to do the Grand Traverse, but I am still waiting for the visa papers to go through, which means I shouldn’t be leaving the country, as without a valid visa I might not be let back in. Is there any obligatory border crossing involved in hiking DGT?
And another question: Would you say DGT is the ultimate Drakensberg hike? We have at least 3+ weeks to spare in the mountains there and would love to explore them well, checking off the most beautiful spots and essential pin points as well as finding the unusual magical places. What would be your suggestion for an extended DGT and more?
Thanks very much, Irmina
