Hi guys

Does anyone know if overnight hiking is allowed in the Mnweni area? Or anywhere in the central berg?

Why don’t you phone the Cultural Centre and ask? They will know best.

I have made this merged thread to manage all Covid-19 related questions and updates as it concerns the Drakensberg. If anyone has relevant updates they can share, please let us know!

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

All Ezemvelo areas are now open for day hikes, except for Didima.

Mnweni is open for overnight hikes, and Witsieshoek is also allowing overnight hiking (although with hikers camping in Royal Natal which is not open for overnighting)
