EVERYTHING IS BETTER
IN HIKING BOOTS
Whether you have just started your hiking adventure,
or you are a trail warrior, we have the hikes for you.
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, and adventure hikes, base camp and backpacking weekends, and since we have our very own camp site, called Foothold, we also offer monthly camps for members where you can socialize, braai, laugh, and hike Magaliesberg's best trail.
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.
Our members come from all walks of life, and range from the very young to the old but bold, and are a diverse group representative of our rainbow nation. It never happens that you get all of them in one place at one time because some hike only on Sundays, some only on Wednesdays, some only do our away hikes.
Johannesburg Hiking Club 90th Anniversary Camp 2021
We are a dedicated bunch of volunteers, planning the best hikes, making sure the club runs smoothly, and keeping Foothold in top form for our monthly campers.
