July Camp in the Drakensberg

The July Winter Camp in the Drakensberg is hosted and organised by the Kwazulu-Natal Section of MCSA. This is the Camp that provides everything and that does mean ‘everything’. You just bring your personal hiking kit and tent and snacks and favourite tipple – we supply the rest, and more!



Friday 28th June to Sunday 7 July 2019


We have shortened the July Camp to ten days. We are starting the July Camp on the Friday, thus giving Campers two weekends with a week in between. It ties in with the school holidays.  We would like you to share the entire Camp with us, but if you can manage only a few days, that is easy to arrange.

The Camp will be held at Cobham in the Southern Berg, in the official Camp Site so that access to the Base Camp will be easy for ALL ages. You just drive up to your selected site, unpack your car, and promptly drive it to the demarcated Parking Place, return to your selected spot, put up your tent and ENJOY YOURSELF.

To celebrate the Centenary we will be starting with Festive Friday, a simple supper affair. Just sherry and the Mountain Club toast before an ordinary July Camp supper (we thought that people might be too tired for a function that night, having driven all the way there and then putting up their tents).

The main Centenary Celebration with be the Centenary Luncheon at 12:30 for 13:00 on Saturday 29th June in a marquee with tables and chairs – a first for July Camp!!!! The caterer is a specialised outdoor caterer and the menu for the 3-course meal is mouth watering. The lunch will be offered at cost, R220.

Please spread the word to your wider group of like-minded friends, we really would love to have you ALL with us to help celebrate the July Camp CENTENARY!
