Local hiking clubs

Are there any local hiking clubs in Pretoria that can be recommended?
I assume that’s the way to go to be able to hike all those wonderful trails that’s been reviewed?

Where do I start my hiking journey?

You could check out the MCSA.
I would say they are THE hiking club.
They have a bunch of sections in SA.

Agree that the MCSA is a good starting point; great place to meet other hikers and they have access to land that’s not open to the public.

Hiking club or no, there are definitely trails you can start exploring like the Rustig trails, Groenkloof Nature Reserve, Hennops Trail, Hedianga Farm etc. For multi-day hikes its a good idea to connect with other hikers.
