Injisuthi is in the northern section of the Giant’s Castle area of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park. Injisuthi includes a hutted camp cradled between the Injisuthi and Cowl Fork rivers at the head of the Injisuthi Valley. There is also a lovely campsite and space for caravans. Injisuthi is surrounded by magnificent scenery and is dominated by Cathkin Peak, Monk’s Cowl and Champagne Castle.

Visitors may undertake many interesting walks into the Mdedelo Wilderness Area, as well as a guided walk to the Battle Cave, famous for its bushman rock art. Several kilometres of trout waters provide an excellent opportunity for flyfishing. The hutted camp consists of fifteen 4-bedded cabins. They are fully equipped, self-contained units with two bedrooms.

Electricity is available between 17:30 and 22:00 only. There are no plug points in the chalets. All units have a fireplace for cold winter nights. Each unit also has its own barbecue facilities. Charcoal and wood are sold at the curio shop.

    Are we able to come to Injisuthi for the day to hike or must we stay overnight? We are based in Nottingham Road.

    Is it possible to complete the Centenary Hut hike as a day hike? I frequently do hikes in my mountains of 20-25 km (13+ miles) with over 3000 ft elevation gain (~1000 m) in 5-6 hours, carrying only a daypack.
