The hike will start at the southern entrance to Upper Tonquani. We will meet early at the Askari Gate and park at the designated MCSA parking spot (Tonquani South access).

The 4-kloofs hike this year is a brand new route that will attempt to navigate the four main kloofs in the area, namely Junction Kloof (new), Tonquani Kloof, Boulder Kloof and Cederberg Kloof. The hike will be mostly in the kloofs so expect to boulder hop, wade through water and scurry up or down gullies.

The route will take us up the hill from the parking in the direction of Red Gully. From there we will traverse across the escarpment to the top of Junction Kloof. This kloof is narrow and slightly overgrown, but makes for a great hike through ferns and beautiful undergrowth. This will eventually bring us to Tonquani Kloof which we will traverse from top to bottom. From there we cut back to Boulder Kloof and exit throuh Cederberg Kloof.

This is a LONG hike and will be strenuous.
A parking fee of R40/car will apply. Non-members are welcome. Please contact Bennie on 082 850 0941 for more details. . . .
