Njesuthi Climbing Notes

Gavin Raubnheimer, Peak High Mountaineering from SOUTH AFRICA writes:

This peak is located 1,5kms east of Mafadi. Like Mafadi, it is simple hike to the summit, but that requires 3 days and nights at least. Most hikers start at Njesuthi, Ezemvelo camp and hike up Judge or Leslie's Pass. The upper Njesuthi Cave is a useful place to sleep. The name means "the satisfied dog" (Zulu)(one that has eaten well)
