Ploughman’s Kop is a mountain in the shape of a head on the left arm of The Amphitheatre in the Royal Natal Park, which is in turn part of the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park.

Really the walk is about the Ploughman’s pools, but to reach them you need to go on a rather short, but nonetheless taxing up and then down walk that takes you from the Mahai campsite.

The pools are en route to the ‘kop’ and well worth the effort, and you can make it up and down within three hours, give or take a few more minutes to enjoy the icy waters of the rock pools.
