This is a very late post but I just wanted to say a huge "THANK YOU" to all the people on this forum. Thanks to the information fond here (Detailed accurate maps ! GPS coordinates of all the caves ! Advice !...) I was able to do a "mini Grand Traverse" (from Sentinel to Sani) from the 13th of April until the 19th of April 2019. It was a great hiking experience and I learned a lot. I also loved the scenery, the caves (Easter Cave was hard to find but really amazing and Injasuthi Summit Cave was also great, once I found the large one), the atmosphere, the interaction with the Basotho herdsmen (managed not to be bitten by their dogs), the joy of finding a trail, the pain of getting sometimes a bit lost ...All in all great memories even if it was difficult for me to hike more than 25km per day. 

To all those attempting this traverse, please do not underestimate the difficulty of it. Doing it alone and un-assisted can be quite a challenge. Take a PLB with you "just in case".
And .... have a great time !

Thanks for reporting back wax, its always nice to hear that the site has helped enrich people's experience of the Berg!

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