GoVertical Mountaineering guides offer an action packed five days in the Drakensberg or Cape Fold Mountains. This is an opportunity to break away from the daily grind, a personal growth experience in the vastly different environment of South Africa’s great mountain ranges, learn practical mountaineering skills while immersing yourself in the beauty of the wilderness.

These challenges are a rewarding life experience on their own, but the skills acquired can also be used as a grounding for future leisure time in the outdoors or a sound base from which to enter the professional adventure guiding industry. No previous experience is necessary. Group sizes are between 4 and 10 people. You’ll experience:
Hiking, - everything you need to know from how to properly pack a backpack to avoiding hazards/ river crossings
Rock Climbing & abseiling, - The basic rope techniques, knots, a set ups and technical skills we’ll include a peak climb
Mountain craft, - From judging weather to choosing the best terrain
Camp Craft, - how to choose a great site, make a safe and efficient camp and of course prepare GOOD food.
