Cape Union Mart Hiking Club is an independent hiking club based in Cape
Town. We arrange day and weekend hikes for both members and visitors in
and around Cape Town, the Western Cape, and other parts of South
Africa. The difficulty of the hikes ranges from very easy to very
challenging and, with around 120 hikes a year to choose from, every type
of hiker should be accommodated.
Our hiking club has over 15 experienced leaders, some of whom have been hiking for over 20 years.
club was founded in 1991 by Maritjie Odendaal, a then Cape Union Mart
store manager in the Blue Route mall. Maritjie placed an announcement in
the store window, which attracted the attention of the other founding
members. The first programme consisted of 26 hikes. From these early days, the club has continued to flourish and we currently have over 300 members.
