Special Mountain Experience
May 2021
I went on a 3 days guided hike (Mnweni Drakensberg) in May 2021. As an avid hiker, I had high expectations regarding this tour and I need to say that these were exceeded for sure. It was particularly for the mountain guides that made this experience memorable. Pushing myself to my limits and having grown stronger through this hike. Special thanks to Rasta & Tazz for sharing this experience, Mountain Riders for Life.

A must for even the non-hiker!
Mar 2021
I'm not a hiker by no means and this trip showed me that all you need is guts, a humour and the ability to go 3 days with the basic necessities. The people and guides on the hike made the trip, you get to meet some amazing like minded people. The hike itself was tough for me because I am afraid of heights, but I managed to almost summit and I am still very satisfied with my result. It's a journey of self growth - I would highly recommend it. Tip: Pack tuna for dinner time!

Never thought I would ever hike the Drakensberg, but doing it with Darren was one of the most amazing experiences. The Mnweni hike was tough, but the spectacular views and Darren's all round positive and easy going nature made it so much easier!

Mnweni hike drakensberg just wow!!!
This is by far the most scenic hike I have ever done. Very challenging but so worth it. We covered 47km in 3 days with 2 nights spent camping in the mountains, South African style. Guides where absolutely amazing and and we felt in good hands the whole trip. The head guide Darren knew the mountains so well. We highly recommend
