List Description

The new constitution of South Africa re-organized the country into nine provinces, eliminating familiar jurisdictions such as the Transvaal and the Cape Province. This yields a nice, still mangeable list of summits for the South African peakbagger. Note that Lesotho, enitrely surrounded by South Africa, has a higher peak than any on this list.

Important! In April of 2016 it was discovered by Louis Roodt of Pretoria that the North-West province high point reported on this site was incorrect. The new high point is a "slope point" 1600 meters west of the old point, "Nooitgedacht West". This old point is actually entirely within Gauteng, while the new point is on the border with North-West.

Special thanks to Jan Viljoen of Ladismith who pointed out to me the original list of high points and helped me research their locations for this site.

Research for this list was also aided by the 1:50,000 scale topographic maps from the MadMappers.com site, plus the Reader's Digest Atlas of South Africa, in addtition to other sources.
