Chain Ladder on Amphitheatre Hiking Trail in Drakensberg
South Africa

The Hiking Trail from the Sentinel Peak Car Park to the top of the Amphitheatre features 2 chain ladders which are not for the faint of heart! The view from the top is spectacular, and provides easy access to the Tugela Falls, the second highest waterfall in the world!

    can you get to the top of the Sentinel without using the chains? Also the route from the Sentinel to the top of the Tugela Falls is how long? And also does one have to go to top of Sentinel to get to the top of the falls?

    More About Africa

    Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
