1-2-5 Climb! Klipspringer

Klipspringer Trail: 2 – 4 October 

It was a hot and arid three day hike through the stunning desert of the Augrabies national park, teeming with wildlife of which the titulat klipspringer was seen on our second day. Beautiful granite gorge with wonderful swimming spots to top it all off, definitely a good trail to do in South Africa. Myself, Kelvin Tam, David Bekker, Emma Bekker and Lynne Owen-Smith are MCSA members from the JHB section.
