Search & Rescue


The Hikers Network Search And Rescue (HNSAR) is a service provider of the Western Cape Wilderness Search And Rescue unit (WSAR). This Rescue outfit operates under the authority of the Department of Health Western Cape, Metro Rescue.

Mountain rescues are co-ordinated with the generous assistance of volunteers from the outdoor fraternity such as, hikers, cavers, climbers, 4×4, K9, and so on. Metro Rescue provides the medical and other important backup. 

The HNSAR members are trained along with the rest of the members of the other WSAR service providers and organisations.
