Soul Adventures and specifically Patrick are simply amazing. They make hiking the Drakensberg so much easier, and accessible to anyone- even those without the camping gear. Their turnkey approach ( at no extra expense) offers everything from tents, backpacks, and sleeping bags right up to delicious warm food at the start and the end of each day. The most surprising being a choice of Hot chocolate, Tea, Fresh French press coffee AND fresh milk. Honestly!? Truley Glamping in the Drakensberg... Patrick somehow manages to carry all of the gear and bits and pieces without breaking a sweat. Soul Adventures and Patrick make the entire experience seamless and easy, it is bordering on cheating. Outside of their catering skills, they seem to have struck the perfect balance of light-heartedness, fun, and knowledge all carefully stitched together with the requisite skill and safety backed up by their mountain qualifications. Patrick must be the only guide who takes a rope up to the Chain Ladders for Justin. Ive now been on three hikes with Soul Adventures, each somehow more impressive than the last. The most recent through the Mnweni Valley. Mnweni is Picture perfect. Breathtakingly beautiful and highly recommended.

All my Drakensberg hikes have been with Soul Adventures and it’s been a great experience. Patrick’s jokes never get old 😂. I love a challenge so I booked 2 hikes back to back over 5 days and it’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself this year. If you have the time I’d recommend this, it’s the best way to disconnect and recharge! Did I mention Patricia the cook and barista? He’ll even carry your bag for you if you carry his!

I highly recommend a trip to the Drakensberg. The views are incredible and it is a great way to escape Joburg, get outdoors, and get some fresh air. Patrick was such a great guide. He's pretty funny, always there to support you, can take great professional photos, will cook you dinner and breakfast, and will bring you tea and coffee to your bed. This was my first ever hiking experience in the Drakensberg. Soul adventures made organising this hike incredibly easy, and they provided guidance on everything I needed to prepare and pack for the hike. Renting the equipment I needed from them, at no extra cost, made the hike much more affordable. I will definitely be back to go on another hike with Soul Adventures!

Patrick really went the extra mile with everything. From great food and coffee, taking us to different view points and making sure everyone enjoyed the hike. They also provide you with the necessary equipment should you need it. If you want to hike the Drakensberg I would definitely recommend Soul Adventures.
