This website (www.hikingsouthafrica.co.za) has been created to serve as a resource for the hiking community of South Africa. The articles on this website (Trail Reports, Gear Reviews, News & Articles, Resources, etc.) are there to provide information.
Although care is given to ensure the accuracy of these articles, many of the articles, specifically the trail reports, are people’s opinions and personal experiences and, therefore, must not be viewed as an exact guide. Difficulty and technical ratings of trails are subjective, based on ability and experience. None of the information on this website should be viewed as a substitute for personal preparedness, experience and good judgement.
The outdoors is beautiful and revitalizing and we encourage everyone to engage with it in a sustainable and ethical manner, but the outdoors also presents its own dangers. Therefore, no matter how much care is taken in the writing of the articles provided on this website, nothing can remove the objective dangers of engaging in hiking, or any other outdoor sport or activity. People should do their own homework before committing to a hike, make sure they have the necessary experience and equipment to complete their objectives safely and take responsibility for their own safety. Always err on the side of caution.
