South Africa's Premier Hiking Club

Since 1931, the Johannesburg Hiking Club has welcomed people from all walks of life who love this beautiful country and want to preserve its natural wonders .


Members get to enjoy the fun and adventure of hiking our awesome mountains,  and discovering and exploring new and fantastic places. We offer Wednesday hikes, Sunday hikes, adventure and leisure hikes, base camp and backpacking weekends, slide shows, club evenings, and social events. 


So if you are looking for a hiking family, you want to get fit, or you just want to escape the stress of the city, then the Johannesburg Hiking Club is for you.  We are the premier hiking club in South Africa, after all.

Remember to:

  •          Wear a mask.

  •          Wash your hands, carry a hand sanitiser when hiking.

  •          Walk a safe distance (1.5m) from your fellow hikers.


We get so many emails, and we can't always get back to you. Check out the FAQ here: it will more than likely answer any questions you have. If you ask us a question that is already answered there, we will probably just tell you to go there anyway.

For Castle Gorge permits or booking info for our away hikes, email, or call 078 885 6505 during office hours,  

and our administrator will be more than happy to assist you.
