At The Hikers Network, we are all about hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. Besides our Hikers Network Hiking Club and our Junior Club, we run various Enviro-Hiking Clubs in various communities in and around Cape Town. These include Mitchell’s Plain, Blackheath, Bonteheuvel, Bishop Lavis, Hannover Park, and Strandfontein.

Our other hiking clubs include Pollsmoor Enviro-Hiking Club, Nurses Who Care, Rainbow Hiking Club, and Ubuntu Hiking Club.
