Positive There are many, many different hikes you can do along the Drakensberg mountain range. there are easy hikes in the foothills that are incredibly beautiful and there are extremely tough, pathless mountain passes that you can tackle to get to the escarpment. You will need some basic fitness even for the easier hikes, and a lot of knowledge to take on the wilderness of the higher mountains.
Negative You need to be properly prepared for any weather conditions, as this is a mountain area. It is possible to experience all 4 seasons in a day. There is no cellphone reception for large stretches of the mountains.
