The Beginning of the Senqu Expedition

Sorry for the Delay in getting Info out through the Blog, getting internet working in such a way as to upload photo’s has been a difficult to say the least.  We begin at the beginning.


These photo’s show the general terrain that Devon and Jurie had to cover to reach Mokhotlong, The hike started with a 30km Accent of the escarpment to the headwaters of the Senqu river in Lesotho.  The climb took them From Saturday the 14th mid-morning, untill later that evening.



Sunday morning saw the guys up at 4am to begin what was supposed to be the second day of hiking to Mokhotlong along the Senqu river.  Instead the day saw the team put in a monster 70 km stretch all the way to Mokhotlong, completing the hike at 2 am Monday morning.

The Locals came out to watch them pass on their hike, all being very friendly.  in their pursuit to follow the river flow, the duo had to cross the Senqu river many times on their journey.

Life is what you make of it. I spend as much time as humanly possible, off the beaten track. where I do not have a choice though, I stay on the track. most of these tracks are within the Drakensberg World Heritage Site. I have been hiking and leading groups professionally for 6 years and have got well over a thousand hours under the belt. I have done more Passes and solo-expeditions than I can recall, most notably of them, the Grand Traverse. The Senqu expedition was an adventure I could simply not negate. I am sure however, that it will not be the last time I undertake a grand venture and am in fact, already dreaming of the next exploratory challenge! Milk it while you can!

Have your say. We want to hear from you.
