Mountain Club of SA - Search And Rescue

Woman deceased after flash flood, Wolkberg Wilderness area, 19/1/2. A young woman tragically passed away when she was surprised by a flash flood during recent rains in the rugged Wolkberg Wilderness area. The woman was swept away by the water which rose rapidly and her body was found later almost two kilometres away.

Raising the alarm in the remote and rugged terrain proved to be a significant challenge as there was no cellphone reception. One of the men in the party hiked for more than 10 Km and drove a fair distance before being able to make a call for assistance.

The body of the woman was recovered the next day by a team comprising of Gauteng MSAR, Off Road Rescue Units from Gauteng and Tzaneen as well as SAPS.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends left dealing with this heart-wrenching tragedy. Our hearts go out to you and we pray that you may find some measure of solace in the many memories of her energy and enthusiasm to live life to the full.

We urge hikers and members of the public to exercise caution during rainy conditions, even when streams are not flowing strongly as conditions may be different further upstream.

Robberg search and recovery, Plettenberg Bay, 18/12/23. A search for a missing man in Plettenberg Bay tragically turned into a recovery operation when a SAPS K9 dog and handler found the man deceased in steep terrain in the Robberg Nature Reserve. The difficult and steep terrain necessitated the remains of the man being brought up to the top via a technical rope stretcher raise. This WSAR incident involved members of the SAPS Dog unit, NSRI, Metro, Cape Nature and the Plettenberg community security as well as the Mountain Club Search and Rescue Garden Route team.

Our sincere condolences to the loved ones and friends.

We also extend our gratitude to all emergency service personnel and volunteers who are assisting their communities over the Christmas holiday period.
