A hutted camp at the head of the Injisuthi Valley, in the northern section of Giant’s Castle Game Reserve, is a breathtakingly beautiful base from which to explore some moderately strenuous hiking trails. Views are dominated by the impressive mountain peaks of Champagne Castle (3,248 m), Monk’s Cowl (3,234 m) and Cathkin Peak (3,149 m), making it a draw for serious climbers and mountaineers. Walks can be taken to natural swimming pools and streams, stunning viewpoints and to see some outstanding San art e.g. in Battle Cave. Traditional Zulu villages may be encountered enroute, with their beehive huts and Nguni cattle. This area provides the exciting opportunity to stay overnight in a cave in the hills (very basic – no facilities).
