Backpacking enthusiasts may choose to walk to the camp, the route is not strenuous and takes between 20 and 30 min.

Sungabala Mountain Camp,  northern Drakensberg Even though there are folk who prefer straight forward camping, there are people who enjoy a hard days hiking and then would like to be able to enjoy a hot shower, an ice cold drink and after dinner settle into a comfortable bed with the peace and quiet of a mountain wilderness around them. Experience the feeling of camping at Sungubala without the need to rough it.
