Where: Magaliesberg, Gauteng
It’s all too easy to dismiss the Magaliesberg as an insignificant row of hills, but mountaineers know and revere its hidden forests and criss-crossing gorges, each a wonderland of hanging gardens, quartzitic walls, waterfalls and boulder-flanked pools. Best of all is Tonquani, the home from home of Gauteng rock climbers and nature lovers.
