Why Should I Join The MCSA

The Mountain Club of South Africa offers the opportunity to become part of a network of like-minded people, whatever activity you engage in:

  • Mountaineering
  • Rock climbing (bouldering, sport and traditional)
  • Scrambling, walking and hiking
  • Conservation
  • Social Evenings

The MCSA Tygerberg section organises over 25 meets every year, with something for everyone. You will have the opportunity to visit little-known parts of the Cape Mountains that few people even know exist, with exclusive access to many pristine mountain areas and huts throughout South Africa. The MCSA owns over a dozen properties and huts in the Western Cape alone, and many more in the other sections! You have reciprocal rights to all 14 sections of the Mountain Club in South Africa and Namibia.

Additional Benefits

Club membership also entitles you to free access through Kirstenbosch (via Rycroft Gate) in order to access Table Mountain and discounts from leading equipment suppliers, including Cape Union Mart and MountainMailorder (-10%), as well as Camp & Climb (up to -5% on hiking gear only).
