July Camp


For the Centenary July Camp, 2019, we have chosen the well-loved Cobham Reserve in the Southern Berg. Our Base Camp will be conveniently sited in Cobham’s easily accessible, drive-in, built camp site, thus there will be no need to carry or transport kit! In addition, the camp site is attractively situated alongside the Pholela River.

We have the wonderful opportunity to celebrate the KwaZulu-Natal Section’s Centenary by adding our Centenary July Camp to the various and very different celebrations planned for this occasion. We chose this very easily accessible Base Camp site so that all who wanted to, would be able to attend the Centenary July Camp. There need be no worries for the parents of the younger would-be July Campers (the youngest yet Camper was one-and-a-half years old and there are two potential Campers even younger than that!). This year’s built camp site also offers more comforts and easier access for the more senior members (We still have to beat the record of a Camper over 90 years old!). Campers of all ages are most welcome to help us celebrate the Centenary July Camp. Non-members also are most welcome to join the Camp and the Centenary celebrations.

Cobham gives easy access to a wide variety of day walks with enticing rock pools for those who can’t resist the lure of a Berg stream. It also offers day visits to the nearer caves of the Little Berg. There are many caves suitable for over-nighting and which suggest exciting sub-camping opportunities. In addition, for those who seek the challenge of longer trips or a traverse in the High Berg there are several mountain passes up to the Escarpment. The Camp lies below the Giant’s Cup Trail and looks up at the Giant’s Cup, itself.
