Kloofing or Canyoneering, is the exploration of a kloof/canyon from point A to point B using a range of techniques that include hiking, scrambling, bum-sliding, chimneying, rock pool jumping, swimming and rappelling/abseiling.
What’s the cost?
– R750pp Includes entrance fees and equipment hire.
– R950pp with private transport. Includes entrance fees and equipment hire. Max 4 people with private transport from JHB/PTA areas only – 1 pick up and drop off location.
Will I be able to do it? – No prior experience is needed – Participants do need to be fairly walking/hiking fit and should be able to swim (BUT we can fit you with an appropriate PFD-life jacket if you are not confident in water). The total distance for the day is only +-5km – but its definitely not a 5km “walk in the park”!
What will I learn? – Safety and awareness while moving over steep/rough terrain, and some important rope work skills like abseiling.
How long is it? – The total duration for the trip is around 5-6 hours (for small groups) 6-7 hours (for large groups). The drive there is around 1 – 1.5hrs from JHB/PTA.
What do I need to bring? – Comfortable clothes that don’t restrict movement and can get wet. Good walking or trekking shoes. Lunch, snacks and water. Medium sized back pack. Spare dry clothes and towel for after the trip.
What equipment do you provide? – We will have all the specialised harnesses, helmets, ropes and hardware that you will need to have a safe and adventurous day out.
How many people can join in? – Minimum 2 people, maximum 4 people with transport provided. Maximum 6 with self drive.
From what age may kids join? – Teenagers from around 15yrs and up – but we are flexible if your child has a really strong hiking/climbing background.
Where is it? – Fernkloof starting at Bergheim Holiday Resort, near Rustenburg/Magaliesburg. But we can also arrange trips to some of the many other kloofs in the area as well.
What days and times can I book? – Available during week days, weekends and public or schools holidays. Contact Ryan to book a day that suits you.
