Parts of the various Saunters follow the challenging Comrades Marathon Route: the ultra-marathon which links Durban and Pietermaritzburg. Along Saunter 3, we follow a large chunk of the route and you will see the wall of plaques to those who managed it 10 times or more.
The views get more dramatic here as you wind up towards Monteseel with one of South Africa’s most famous rock climbing cliffs. Stretching out into the distance is the stunning Valley of 1000 Hills and KwaZulu-Natal’s Table Mountain forms a backdrop to unspoilt bush further along. There is a wonderful loop to Byrne, a Scottish Settler Valley.
