Hi Guys,

Do anyone have a nice 4 day route suggestion, we would preferably like to over night in the caves and keep to the lower areas of the berg. Three of the people joining on the hike will be completely new to the Berg. We would be hiking over Easter Weekend from the 30th Of March - 2nd Of April.

My friends and I already hiked the route from Injisuthi Camp, Centenary Hut, Judges Pass, Upper Injisuthi Cave, Mafadi Peak, Leslie's Pass, Marble Baths Camp site, over Easter last year.

Your assistance is appreciated.
Kind Regards
Marley

@MarleyB,

4 days in the lower berg is quite a long time, but you can try Zulu cave to Wondervalley cave from Moncs Cowl area, basically a 3 day hike.
You can also do a lot of the lower berg caves in the Injasuthi area, like LIC, Marble Baths caves, grindstone cave and Wonder Valley cave, although these would already be booked probably.

Why not go to the top of the escarpment? Take 2 days to get to the top, so the newbies will survive the trek. Mnweni area is good for this. 5 star cave night one, ledges cave night 2, Easter cave night 3 and then down Ntonjelana pass on day 4.

Or you can even go up the chain ladders and go from Ifidi cave right around the Mnweni cutback and back. Just depends on the fitness levels of your group.

Enjoy!

Why not do some Cave hopping in the Cobham area?

Hi @viking

What route would you suggest for the cave hopping? I am not familiar with the area.
