Got a confirmation on the night before, but they canceled the trip on the morning itself, because of bad weather.

I spent a week in SA and did this hike on my last day. It took a while to find on the site but I’m glad I did. My guide was super knowledgeable and took me to all the great sites. Would absolutely recommend!

This is an interesting hike in special nature - the Magaliesberg were created by a meteorite strike a long time ago. The location is just outside Pretoria - but this is not too far away from Joburg areas (where I was picked up). Be aware, though, that from Joburg the local traffic can get chaotic...
