Tuesday Walk

The club a group of energetic young at heart walkers do a walk every Tuesday. These walks range from 2 to 6 hours and are a good way of keeping up with local news as they are really a social event with a lot of talking on the way. All welcome.

8 October- Somewhat of a “round” trip combining two of our usual walks into one. We start at the Drakensberg Sun cat park at 7.00 am. ( for those who are still slightly asleep at that time from 1 October the hikes start at 7.00 am). We will get a lift to the top of Bergview and walk to the bottom of the Stylberg turning right on Van Damm’s Cascades on the  path to Stable cave.  From there we walk down to the Blue Grotto and back to Drakensberg Sun hotel.
