About Marble Baths Trail

Start: Injasuthi (Injisuthi) camp, central Drakensberg
Finish: Injasuthi camp
Duration: 9 km, roughly 6 hours, or overnight
Fitness: moderate, not difficult
Our tip: one can take older children (over 8) on this hike if they are fit, and if you do it as an overnight trail

Start at the Injasuthi office and walk (or drive) down to the Injasuthi river bridge (1 km away). The path to Marble Baths is clearly signed from there.

Marble Baths is often merely the first stop on a longer hike to Lower Injasuthi Cave, via Marble Baths and Battle Cave. To give you an idea: Marble Baths is merely a lunch stop on the Mafadi Peak trail.

The path trails the left bank of the river after an initial crossing, which can get a little dicey when in flood, so be sure to check with the office ahead of time, particularly if you have chosen to take children on the hike.

Overnight in Marble Baths Cave, but be sure to book it ahead of time (this you can apparently do on the KZN wildlife website), as the cave is a favourite and sleeps only about 8 at a time.

There are a series of beautiful natural rock pools at Marble Baths that deserve an overnight stop to fully appreciate. The cave is roughly 60 metres up the slope from the pools.

On your return either take the same route, or head over the top (so to speak) past Grindstone caves and back to Injasuthi camp. This is a slightly longer version of the hike but fun to do if a there-and-back sounds tedious.

Take little with you: as long as you have all-weather clothing, a sleeping bag and mat, a change of clothes and basic food that you can cook in one pot (make sure you have plenty of snacks).
