Drakensberg shuttles?

Post by janeruth »


Planning on do the traverse from the sentinel to cathedral peak area but we've only got one car - can anyone recommend a shuttle service? I can't imagine we're the 1st people with this problem?

Even if we have to hitch to Bergville and catch a shuttle from there maybe, or if the shuttle only gets us as far as Witsieshoek?

Thanks :thumleft:

We once stayed a night at a backpacker type place near Swinburne. The owner was more than happy to drive our car back from Witsieshoek, and then fetch us again at Cathedral. Can't remember name or details unfortunately.

There was a fairly comprehensive discussion about this on VE, see:

The guy who runs Witsieshoek does personal transport, but charges a fortune for it. He charged us R150 to drive 5km from Sentinel Carpark to Witsieshoek (and we were spending the night at the lodge).
