Wolfberg/Tafelberg Closures any update

Post by Scotclimber » Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:54 pm

Hi,

We are a group of foreign climbers planning to visit South Africa next year.

Just wondering if there is any update on the Tafelberg/Wolfberg closures?

I think I read somewhere they were due to make a decision in November whether to reopen?

We will probably still come if not but will impact our itinery and potentially also the timing of our visit, as we are just trying to plan it at the moment.

Any info appreciated - thanks!

There is no certainty as yet. But it is still closed and the talk is that it might be several years before it reopens.

OK thanks for the purposes of trip planning we will probably assume its still likely to be closed next year then.

Earliest mooted reopening is summer of 2018 (December?) but that's in no way certain. The current drought is severely affecting the recovery of the area. Krakadouw (lesser known but still amazing) is still open
Happy climbing
