The day arrives, nerves kick in and the final packing is completed. Our transport legend, Kath “Shoeless” fetches us at 09:00 and we begin the day’s drive to the Sentinel car park from Durban. After signing registers at 15:30 (R100 each to traverse) and chatting to some hikers returning from the falls, we decided to set out to Sentinel cave. Getting started on the walk settled nerves, and honestly, I think the cave is more comfortable than the car park hut.
That night we had veggie burgers fried, luxury, and blessed the start with good ol’ OBS.
