Mbona Hill

Mbona Hill bathed in crisp afternoon light after a summer thunderstorm as viewed from Bushwillow Park. The Karkloof is a picturesque setting for a 100 Miler and guarantees incredible and varied scenery throughout the course.

The Karkloof100 start and finish venue is Yard41 which is in Howick where there are numerous BnB options. There are also a number of great accommodation option in the Karkloof, some of which the course passes through (see below).

Camping (you need your own equipment) or a dorm bed are available at WESSA Umngeni Valley, only 1km along the Karkloof Road from Yard 41. This is included in the entry fee as an option to all entrants.

Spectator camping fee: R120 per adult and R60 per child (Can be booked separately)


A recommended option for those who like to camp is to set-up at the WESSA Umngeni Valley or Bushwillow. Meals will be available throughout the weekend at the The Farmers daughter at Yard 41.
