Overnight specialized professional trekking company taking clients into the outer space of the high Drakensberg and showing them their inner space. ALIEN ADVENTURES offer overnight experiences from one to thirteen nights. We tailor make experiences to suit your fitness, time, and budget. From simple one night treks, sleeping in the little Berg ( Lower Injusiti Cave ) , or looking to complete the world famous “GRAND TRAVERSE” across the High Berg in the outer space, we provide professionally guided overnight trips.
Clients can choose from many overnight excursions, ranging from loops in specific areas, incorporating nights on the escarpment at an average of 3000m, to traverses across the high berg in Lesotho. The Mini, or Grand Traverse , are some of the more famous options available. Mafadi Peak, the highest peak in South Africa (3450m), is also one of the more popular routes. Cathedral Peak or the Injasuti areas of the central Drakensberg, offer amazing loops, sleeping in ancient caves with world class views of the free standing peaks dominating the areas.
Overnight stops are in remote wilderness areas where we sleep by mountain streams in tents or on the escarpment edges in caves. Clients are required to carry all relevant equipment to survive the Dragon’s Wrath should it awaken (See check list). Porters are available at an additional cost, as is the hiring of equipment. Catering and shuttles to entry and exit points are optional. Lodge accommodation can be arranged for the nights before and after your journey.
Distances covered, and altitude change, depend on the client’s fitness and capability. 12 to 15 km per day, would be the average distances walked each day. Terrain is extremely wild and often over steep grass ridges, across wild plateaus, crossing rivers, and occasionally through exposed breath taking sections.
