Get Hiking!

It's time to get hiking, and the best way to do so if you are unsure of your fitness or gear is to start

with the Club's day hikes.  Check our latest Fixture List to see what is available.

If you are considering joining the Club but would like to try out a few hikes first, you are welcome

to participate as a visitor.  Please always contact the leader several days in advance of the fixture

to check for space, make arrangements for sharing lifts, and to get more details about where to meet.

 

Welcome to the Mountain Backpackers Club

Welcome to one of the most active, fun and vibrant hiking clubs in South Africa!
