Drakensberg - One Way Transport

Hi All,

I am new to the forum - thanks for all the info etc provided here and on the page.

We are currently planning a ±200km run in the Drakensberg and trying to tackle the transport issue. Is there any good one way transport? Any contact? We would probably require transport from Lotheni Camp back to Sentinel Car Park.

Thank you
Dennis

HI Dennis
We booked a shuttle via a company called Golf Got U from Boesmansnek to Mnweni in 2012 - not sure if they’re still operational
There are however many taxis operating in most Drakensberg areas and you would probably be able to arrange one from any functioning campsite/hotel at a considerably cheaper rate than a pre-booked shuttle; just ask the local employees for a number / reference. We did that in 2013 from Cathedral Peak hotel; took an hour to organise a taxi back to Witsieshoek.
Perhaps give the guys at Lotheni campsite a call and ask for their advice?
Good luck!

Found the deets for Golf Got You - chat to Fiona:

And there’s a whole thread on the Vertical Endeavour Forum; last entry is March 2020:

" We just completed a Mini Traverse and I can highly recommend Mbongiseni Shuttle: 078 168 5837, 061 403 1691, 079 985 9914. We made arrangements to leave our car at Amphitheatre Backpackers (R200 for 5 days) and Mtshali from Mbongiseni Shuttle took us from there to Sentinel Car Park and picked us up at the the end at Cathedral Peak Hotel–R1200 round trip for the both of us. wiseman.mtshali2@gmail.com"

awesome, thanks so much Willem
