Mervyn Henderson

In the Drakensberg

My Background:
I am a roads engineer. I worked at the Provincial Roads Department for most of my life. I started hiking early in my teens and joined the club in 1987. 
Tennis, photography, bird watching, gardening, classical music.

I enjoy a variety of hikes, the Otter being my favourite, having hiked it 11 times! I have organised hikes to the furthest reaches of SA, eg, the Prospector Trail in Mpumalanga and the Kosi Bay Trail in KZN. I have also enjoyed regular visits to the Drakensberg, where I have done a variety of wilderness hikes including climbing Cleft Peak as well as the Giant's Cup Trail. The Cederberg is also a favourite hiking destination. During summer I have enjoyed many river trips to Bainskloof and Du Toitskloof rivers. We are incredibly lucky to have such sparkling and unpolluted rivers in the Western Cape.
