The Bannerman hut at the bottom of this pass makes this one of the very popular passes in the Drakensberg. It’s a very short pass and you’ll find yourself at the top in no time at all. Despite its relative ease, it is still quite a fun pass to do with the final section heading up a narrow rock-filled gully. No real scrambling is required to do this section and it is therefore a great pass to do when you are new to the Drakensberg.

Hallo

Does anyone have gps co-ordinates for the following routes:

Giant's Castle Main Camp to Bannerman Pass; and
Langalibalele Pass to Giant's Castle Main Camp.

The co-ordinates which I downloaded from VE does not seem to be working with Sunnto.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Good afternoon. I am planning to hike Bannerman pass and want to get an early start from the Wildlife Office. Can anyone suggest a decent campsite to use close to Giant's Castle KwaZulu Natal Wildlife Office?

I was told one can camp at White Mountain Resort just few kms down the road. However I haven’t used them myself yet -  http://www.whitemountain.co.za/

I have done this many times and just pay to over night camp then stay at the old campsite at Giants castle. Obviously no electricity or showers but they have a toilet.
