Bear in mind you can apply for permits from the MCSA as a non-member for access to some of the classic Magaliesberg kloofs: mcsajohannesburg.org/index.php/permitsahuts


Thank you!

What about doing more of a base-camp type of trip, where you tent at the start and do short day hikes from there? A couple of places could work for that, such as Mountain Sanctuary Park, Kgaswane Nature Reserve, Riverside Paradise (where the old Frogs Trail used to start), or even Hennops (they have hikers accommodation I believe).

Dome pools in the Magaliesberg might also be an option - I haven't done it myself but I have heard that it is one of the more child-friendly routes :)

Thanks for the ideas!

Yes, thanks. I have been to Dome pools and that is the kind of place we are looking for.

I was just not aware that non-mountain club members could go there, but apparently it is possible to get a permit.
