The 7th edition of the South African Highline Meeting will be hosted at De Pakhuys in Rocklands over the Easter weekend, 10-13 April 2020.
Highlines ranging from 20-65m long will be rigged and ready to walk. Campsite lines for learning highlining techniques will help first timers with the basics. We’ll have some waterlines over the dams for fun in the sun too!
Other activities include Climbing, Swimming, Hiking, Unicycling, Juggling, Tricklining, Rodeolining, AcroYoga, Music etc…
Camping and Accommodation:
De Pakhuys Campsite will be the main area of activity, in close proximity to the Highlines (10min walk), lake (swimming and waterline), kitchen, bar, etc. There is no need to book a campsite, but if you’d like a cabin, it’s best to phone the office well in advance.
Alpha Excelsior also has accommodation available, and a dam for swimming and waterlining. The new Donkey Camp has 8 permanent caravans for hire with two camp slacklines, about 30mins walk to the highlining action.
Traveller’s Rest is another accommodation option with a restaurant and slackline alongside a river.

Then carry on past Clanwilliam and over the Pakhuys Pass. De Pakhuys/Alpha Excelsior turnoff is on the right a few hundred meters after the pass.
