The Wolkberg used to be a wilderness trail but they have now built a marked path. The official opening will take place between 6 – 9 December this year.
They recently phoned Bill and offered an opportunity to our Club for 3 members to attend the opening free of charge. All food will also be supplied.
It is a back-packing hike and you will also need to carry a tent so will need to be fairly fit. It is said to be of moderate difficulty with tough spots.
Rudolph will be going but there are two places open and it will be a case of first come, first served. Please let Bill know urgently if you wish to go: 082 576 8198 or email via ZachiusM@tdw.co.za and mark it for Bill’s attention.
