Sekororo 21 to 24 March 2024

We are planning another trip to Sekororo, an amazing kloof close to Burgersfort, Limpopo.

Although we are not aware of any significant caves in this dolomite-rich area and none were found on our previous visit, we are hopeful to make a new discovery after a local showed us footage of a cave that they found. The local will take us to the cave/s that they know of on one of the days. While we are there, we might as well do an incredible kloof a few times on the other days!

The Sekororo campsite is situated next to an amazing waterfall and pool which is the last leg of the kloof and the river flowing past the camp is clean and safe to drink. Apart from water, there is nothing else in terms of facilities. You have to take your own food, sleeping stuff, caving and kloofing gear etc. There is no reception at camp but a scramble out of the kloof to higher ground puts you back in contact if you need to make a call.

If you are interested, please join the Sekororo 2024 Whatsapp group on the SEC Community.

Please be aware that space is limited and the trip might already be full.

Ou-kleintjie Caving Trip 14 January 2024

Good day everyone. For the January caving trip this upcoming Sunday the 14th we will be doing Oukleintjie, were we will be introducing the first annual SEC treasure hunt!
Thanks to AJ for sponsoring the prize (a GoPro), which he hid in the Cave so well that he doesn't even know where it is. Second prize is the torch that Dylan dropped on my face (condition unknown... buried under rocks, the torch not Dylan. Although his fate is also unknown).

The cave is somewhat visitor friendly- involves crawling, a ladder and bouldering. Meeting time and place will be at Oaktree garage at 09:00 on 14th January. Visitor fees are R100 per person.
Please PM me if interested in joining, there are limited spaces.
Regards Edmund.
(Note: I've been advised by my lawyer to say that the treasure hunt prize is purely satirical and that the GoPro belongs to AJ, we still have to find it though)
