Description

A 10 panel panorama of the Milkyway, as seen from the top of the Amphitheatre mountain range in the Drakensberg, South Africa.
The tent was pitched 10m from a 1km vertical drop, also the home of the Tugela Waterfall, second highest waterfall in the world.
The hike up to the top of the Amphitheatre took about 3 hours from the Sentinel car park, using the chain ladders to reach the summit. This is the only day hiking trail which leads to the top of the Drakensberg escarpment. We (Cory and I) overnighted next to the Tugela falls to catch the Milkyway, which rises to the east over the local settlements.
