We had a fantastic experience doing the Drakensberg mini traverse. Gustav, Godfrey and team were superb!

We were coming from overseas, and they ably arranged all necessary logistics and answered our many questions.

They know the mountain like the back of their hand. Recommendations for dates, routes, where to camp, viewpoints were all super. One of us twisted a knee and they presented several route options to pursue (we ended up descending 1 day earlier than planned). Overall, they always presented information for us to make informed and confident decisions.

They are fun to be around and always professional. You could go without a guide but enjoyment would be lower and risk would be higher. Thank you Itchyfeet team! We look forward to a next time and give our wholehearted recommendation.

Gustav and Godfrey make for great company and truly reliable guides. They came well prepared for our three day hike and after a quick briefing we were off in the Drakensberg Giants Castle area. Gustav in particular knows a lot about the area, the climate, conditions and the wildlife. It was a blessing to have the two of them as guides. Thanks, Itchyfeet for a magnificent couple of days!

We did a three day “self sufficient” hike with 6 friends in Giants Castle. What an awesome place! Mister Gustav and mister Godfrey were very friendly and resourceful guides. They explained a lot about the surroundings and showed us some really cool views and places. Gustav did some great cooking and he helped me big time with my old hiking shoes that broke down halfway. Thank you very much for creating such an unique experience! All the best,
Bob (&Janna, Ludo, Tom, Louis and Pam)

Me and my best friend ( both 20 years old ) were searching for the ultimative Drakensberg experience in order to get the most of our 2-Days in the Drakensberg. Fortunately, a colleague of mine recommended Gustav as a tour guide for our trip. He has done an amazing job throughout those 2-Days. Everything was perfectly organised and very much fun. We have done rock climbing and white water rafting.

Yes, we would do it again.

Thanks for the great time Gustav and Godfrey!
Kind Regards,
Marcus and Paul
