July, in the middle of winter here on the southern hemisphere, is a great time to pack your tent and warm sleeping bag and head out into the berg to test what stuff you are made of. The July Camp is hosted by the KwaZulu-Natal Section and has been held for 101 years! Always in the majestic uKhahlamba Drakensberg, Campers are surrounded by magnificent scenery, dominated by towering peaks. The Camp offers dramatic and scenically rugged terrain with exhilarating hiking in the Little Berg; backpacking on the Escarpment with a range of mountain passes in between; rock-climbing opportunities; and, if weather conditions are suitable, even opportunities for building snowmen! Often the Camp is held in areas which have some superb examples of rock art, e.g., Battle Cave. Bird life is abundant as are the antelope and small wildlife for which the Berg is renowned. Presently the Camp is over 9 nights, but Campers are most welcome to attend for just a few days or for the whole period.
