Sun 5

Bergheim hike and braai

It’s a steep ascent but there is excellent hiking on top. Perhaps a swim in a natural pool is what you’re after – we can oblige. Return to a refreshing swim and braai.

Wed 8

Segwati Ranch

A favourite. Lots of game to be seen along the way. A swim and a braai afterwards

Sun 12

Castle Gorge

Once you’ve made it to the saddle head off and explore. The rock formations will amaze you if you just use your imagination – chess pieces, dogs, seals. Relax by the pools for lunch, then head back to the car park.

Slide show/club eve

“Himalayan Adventure ( Tibet)” by Jill Persson

Once on top, great views with perhaps a swim and the view of the highest waterfall in the Magaliesberg.
