Upcoming Hikes
 
Hike programs cover a four month period and are published in October, February and June.
 
Every two weeks the upcoming hikes are updated below for ease of reference.
 
Important notes:
 
Leaders MUST be contacted before hikes, especially during winter. Hikes may be cancelled due to weather and leaders need to know who to contact if there are cancellations.
 
Times - The times indicated in the hiking program are the times that the hikes start/leave from the meeting place.  Please be at the meeting point at least 5 minutes before the starting time to allow for enough time to sign in etc.  The leader may choose to wait 5 minutes for late comers, but more than this is not fair to the hikers that did arrive on time.
 
Visitors - The club welcomes visitors to join any of our hikes. We request that you make contact with the leader who will advise you on the suitability of the hike based on your fitness level.  Generally, the Saturday Hikes are easier and suited to beginners, whilst Sunday hikes are more strenuous. Visitors to any of our hikes are asked to offer a nominal donation to the club. Currently the amount asked is R20 per visitor.

Tour starts at 10 am (please arrive by 9.45) and lasts approx. 90 minutes.  Cost R 220.00 per person.  We shall then take a light lunch (in the restaurant or bring a picnic) before setting out to explore on our own. For those that don’t wish to do the guided tour, but would like to join for the hike meet 1.15pm in the courtyard outside the restaurant.   There should be some pretty flowers on show and we may see game, so perhaps a chance to practice tracking skills learnt during the guided tour.
