ALERT!  HIKING IN THE DRAKENSBERG INCIDENT REPORT

SUMMARY:
3 Hikers from the MCSA Magaliesburg Branch. Hiked to top of Giants Pass and made camp at 17H00. 2 unidentified persons @ the top of the pass watching and acting strangely. 18HOO a shot was heard. Hikers didn't move camp. At 19H00 3x headlamps approached, shots fired. Hikers fled into the dark. Tents ransacked and items stolen. Nobody hurt. Hikers went down Giants Pass to safety.
Likely that persons were waiting to use the Pass for business, and the hikers were in the way. 
 
A reminder to members to avoid camping at the top of passes and to choose campsites wisely.
