Who are we?

The Mountain Backpackers Club of KZN was founded in 1987, and is renound for it's vibrant and friendly atmosphere.  The Club offers several hikes a week, that cater for all levels of fitness - So you can pick and choose what you'd like to do. Enjoy the beauty, and majesty of the African outdoors, and follow your feet to new destinations! Go hiking!

What do we do? We hike! But where and when?

The club offers hikes primarily in the Drakensberg and surrounds, as well as trips along our magnificent coastline, and in areas around Durban, Pietermaritzburg, the Midlands and the North and South Coast. There's always something, somewhere, on for you - be it one of our day hikes (in various areas close to you) , or perhaps a weekend hike is more what you're looking for! (nights on these may be spent in caves/tents/at campsites/chalets depending on the hike in question). Periodically the club also puts on longer hikes, to further away destinations, these include - The Otter Trail, Amatola, Wild Coast.....Hikers can even choose to jump continents and hike in places such as France, Mozambique, Namibia, Spain, Nepal, Peru amongst many others.

You're in safe hands!

All our hikes are led by experienced Hike Leaders, who know the terrain, weather conditions, wildlife and what to look out for in every area they hike in. So, there's no need to stress, where ever our boots take us, we're in safe hands! Don't know what to bring? The hike leaders can also assist you here, and on the trail. Please remember that private vehicles are used to get to and from hikes.
