General Rules for Huts and Club Properties

Before visiting any property which the MCSA owns or has access privileges to, please ensure that you are familiar with the rules and etiquette downloadable here.

Hut Booking Procedure (Only Members who are hut key holders may book huts)

A new (since 1 July 2016) booking procedure applies to overnighting in or camping in the grounds of Table Mountain Hut, Agtertafelberg Hut and Du Toit’s Kloof Hut, in that your visit must be pre-booked and prepaid. The huts can be booked up to two months in advance.

  • Check availability on the relevant hut’s calendar (accessible in the members’ area on each hut’s page).
  • Book your visit with the Cape Town Section office: or call 021 465 3412 during office hours (weekdays, 10am to 2pm).
  • Once the office has confirmed availability, pay either in cash at the office or by EFT.
  • Your booking will be confirmed once payment is received.
  • Carry printed confirmation of the booking with you on your visit, and provide it on request.
  • Please cancel your booking if you can’t make it, as a courtesy to other members.
  • Note however that fees are not refundable.
  • We ask booked members to be accommodating of others who need to share the hut in true emergency situations.

Booking procedures for other properties remain unchanged. (Refer to each property’s page for details.)
