Welcome to the Mountain Club of South Africa
Magaliesberg Section

The Magaliesberg Section of the Mountain Club of South Africa is based in Pretoria and has a membership of approximately 290 from all age groups and walks of life.

  • The club holds presentation evenings, hiking and climbing meets and other activities.

  • For details regarding planned activities refer to the programme

  • Peglerae, is the quarterley newsletter of the Magaliesberg Section with mountaineering news items, feedback on hiking and climbing meets, and announcements.

  • The Magaliesberg mountain range lies in between the highveld savannah of the Witwatersrand and the African bushveld, stretching roughly from Rustenburg in the west, past Pretoria to Bronkhorstspruit in the east. This mountain range is almost 100 times older than Everest with interesting geology, archaeology, fauna and flora. The conservation of the Magaliesberg nature area is therefore important to the Magaliesberg Section. 

  • Public access to Mountain Club properties in the Magaliesberg is limited for reasons of conservation and to preserve a wilderness feeling. No facilities are provided. Depending on the kloof, a certain amount of members of the public can visit a specific kloof via a permit system.

  • Do you want to become a member?
