Before you join:

You are very welcome to come on one or two of our day hikes as a guest to see if you enjoy the club before becoming a member. Simply have a look at our FIXTURE LIST and if you find a hike you would like to participate in, contact the relevant hike leader. Let them know you are new and ask about the fitness and equipment requirements for that hike. Generally, the essentials for a day hike are a pair of hiking boots with thick socks (running shoes are sometimes fine depending on the terrain), a water bottle, and a small backpack to carry your snacks, water, jacket, etc. Other useful items are a hat, a hiking pole, sunscreen, and rain gear.

To join the Midlands Hiking Club:

If you are ready to join the club, please contact our Membership Manager at
midlandshikingclub@gmail.com for an application form.


The membership fee is R120 per year for a single membership, and R180 for a family membership. Family memberships cover two adult members (spouses or partners). Children under 18 can participate in club events for free if they are accompanied by an adult member (and at the hike leader's discretion).

The subscription year runs from 1 August through to 31 July. The fee for new members joining mid-year is calculated on a pro rata basis, and our Membership Manager will let you know the exact amount.
