Foothold

New Year Camp 2017/2018
30 Dec 2017 - 1 Jan 2018

24. January 2018

Another year has come and gone but what a farewell 45 revellers (11 non members) accorded this special occasion at Foothold. Many campers arrived on Friday with a steady flow coming in over the next two days with Hikers Haven being fully booked. It was hot, but this did not deter the keenest of hikers in making their way to the escarpment or Western Pools.

Christmas Camp

George Country Resort
17 - 27 December 2017

24. January 2018

We all arrived at the camp site on the 17th December 2017. The site area was pretty much open. Most of the caravan sites had trees in their areas. Otherwise the camp was quite pleasant. This year there were only 16 of us, which made organizing venues for everyone very simple.

Slackpack Hike

Diamond Coast Trail
30 Oct - 3 Nov 2017

17. January 2018

One is always a bit apprehensive when going on a brand new hike. How will it worked out? We really had an excellent time!!


I travelled down to Kleinzee with Tammeryn en Astrid in two days. We stayed over at a backpackers in Upington. The lady of the backpackers cooked a nice meal for us - see was very caring. One could take two roads from Springbok to Kleinzee, unfortunately we took the bumpy road! Though on the way back we took the other one which was much better.

Backpack Hike

Fanie Botha
22 - 25 September 2017

2. December 2017

12 Hikers did three days of the Fanie Botha Trail over the long weekend in September. Day 1 and 3 were nine kilometers each through pine forest - more a walk in and out. Day two was incredible beautiful. It takes you up through an indigenous forest all along a stream. One has to cross over the stream on 'bridges', pass several beautiful waterfalls all whilst climbing and climbing...... A classic hike one wants to do over and over again. We were a nice group of hikers very much supportive of one another.  A perfect way the celebrate SA's heritage weekend.
