us for a day of kloofing (canyoning/canyoneering) in the Magaliesberg.
This is a great time-filler trip for people with a day to spare at the
beginning or end of another trip, or as a weekend out.
The trip starts with a walk up the open slopes of the Magaliesberg -
not too strenuous. We then scramble into the kloof (gorge) to commence
with the more exciting part of the trip. Depending on the strength and
experience of the group we can set up an abseil as soon as we enter the
kloof, where you can learn to abseil (or just refresh your memory on how
it works) before we proceed downstream. About 1/3 of the way down the
kloof we have a compulsory abseil of about 20m. After this there's no
The rest of the kloof involves small jumps, swims
and a bum-slide into the water. Near the bottom of the kloof we scramble
out into the sun to dry off before walking back to the cars. Most
groups start this trip at 09h00 and are back at the cars by 16h00.
We will provide all technical equipment, which includes:
If you are not a confident swimmer (capable of crossing 25m of deep water) then let us know and we'll bring you a life jacket.
- Technical climbing equipment
Costs are inclusive of permits. However, permits can only be booked during week-day mornings, so please give adequate warning.
best time of year to undertake this trip is the Southern Hemisphere

GREAT trip for those who find themselves in or near Gauteng
(Johannesburg / Pretoria) or staying at Sun City and have a day to
spare. If you've planned your holiday and find that you have one day to
spare then consider this as a time-filler.
