Booking Orange Kloof

Does anyone know the name or number of the person to contact for booking a hike in Orange Kloof? All the extensions for the SAN Parks Tokai office are on voice mail.

I think you can only get permits via a hike leader, they’re not easy to get. I did the hike last year, nice and quiet as the number of tickets per day are very limited.

Hi, call the Mountain Club of SA to see if they can assist. The hike leader must be registered with them.

Last info I received from them…
" All Weekends (Fri; Sat and Sunday’s) including Public Holiday’s for the Year 2022 = Are Booked Out
For any other urgent matters contact the Office on (021) 422-1601 or (021) 4222-803."

It’s required that you go with a registered guide or a MCSA member (needs a CAP number). If you’re keen to go in the week I can take you or try hook you up with someone that can take groups. limited to 12 per day.

edit: orange Kloof and hells gate requires different permits btw. it’s also not highly promoted as there are lots of rogue hikers from the dam wall. it’s a HIGHLY sensitive area with ancient flora.

MCSA member or registered guide needed?This is all new info to me. Where is this information publicised?


I am a member of the MCSA, but looks like I would still require a guide to do Hell’s Gates and Woodhead Tunnel etc. That’s frustrating.

Hi all,

Opening this thread again. Do you perhaps know of any guides that can take a group into Orange Kloof?
Very interested in doing this hike.

Kind regards
