Our hike was tough but thanks to Sylvester, our guide for the day, we made it. He knows the mountain extremely well and made us feel comfortable and guided us so well. He constantly checked on all of us. I would recommend his services anytime

Hi, Yes, you need a passport as you will be travelling via the Border at Caledon. A passport should take around 1 -2 weeks (although they have been known to be ready in 3 days), so please plan accordingly.
