The Drakensberg Grand Traverse is the mother of all Drakensberg hikes. At roughly 220 kilometres across the main ridge, the trek can take a strong hiker anywhere between six to 10 days to complete. Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel ran it in less than three days while carrying all their own gear and without receiving any form of support along the way. It was just them against the mountain and the clock.
