Freelance photojournalist and avid-adventurer Scott Ramsay has had his fair share in exploring the Drakensberg. Inspired by his previous hikes as well as a book called “A Camera in Quathlamba”, a black and white photographic book published in 1980 by R.O. Pearse, Scott set off on a 6-day hike through the Northern Drakensberg. His starting point? Witsieshoek Mountain Lodge.

Along with two friends, Scott Ramsay trekked from the Sentinel Peak near Witsieshoek in the far north, to Didima Gorge in the Cathedral Peak area further south. The route would traverse what almost all the Berg experts rate as the most beautiful part of the Drakensberg, and you can read all about it here on Scott’s amazing and inspiring blog, Love Wild Africa.

Scott’s blog is an absolute feast for the eyes leaving you with plenty of inspiration to plan your next adventure.
