MAGALIESBERG KLOOFING

Hartbeespoortdam

Activity Description

Join us for a day of fun and excitement as we walk up the mountain slopes and then scramble down into a pristine gorge and follow it down stream.

We meet at the parking area at 08h30 and complete final administration and kit issue before starting the walk up the slopes of the mountain, which takes about an hour – then the uphill is over!

We scramble down a gully into the 60m deep gorge (that’s more than 15 stories!) and follow the river down the gorge, walking, rock hopping, wading, swimming, jumping and abseiling along the way to make our way to the exit point. Along the way we’ll stop for a lunch break (normally quite early) and with a bit of luck we’re back at the cars around 15h30 – in time for a leisurely drive back home.

Customer Reviews

Was amazing! And so much fun!! We can't wait to do the next one. You guys were awesome Thank you - Lorraine Roseler


We were upgraded to advanced on the day. It was physically and mentally challenging. But the reward was being able to finish the course (with my limited fitness level) and to share the story with our family & friends. I'm glad I can add it to my bucket list and tick it off. Our guide was highly skilled, we could never have achieved all that we did without him! - Wendy Florence


Great experience in beautiful scenery. There was some fantastic abseiling and it was an incredible privilege to see that side of the Magaliesberg. I'm very glad that I took the team's advice and used the wetsuit they provided - it can get mightily chilly after those swims! - Julian Grieve


This was the most fun I have had outdoors ever! Would highly recommend this as it was a fantastic experience. - Saieshni Thanthony


A Great day, though I was expecting more abseiling. Robert is a very good guide. - Alexandre Gizard
