Drakensberg from Mikes Pass

I saw pictures of the Drakensberg mountain range in South Africa twenty five years ago. The skyline of spectacular peaks and exotically-fertile foothills made a big impression, as did the evocative name (Dragon's mountains). So I didn't need persuading when Denis Hocking, friend and long term South African aficionado, suggested a trip for November of this year. His main interest was the Indian ocean shore between East London and Durban, "the Wild Coast". For me it was the Drakensberg. David Ward was also drafted into the party. Sadly for us David got an irresistible offer meanwhile (Tasmania) and pulled out.
