CEDERBERG, WESTERN CAPE

WELCOME to the official Cederberg tourism site - learn all about the towns situated in the Cederberg Municipal region as well as about the Cederberg mountains and Cederberg Wilderness area, what you can do here, where to have delicious meals and where you can stay…
 
The Cederberg region is only two hours from Cape Town and yet the landscape is completely different: wilder, warmer with a raw, dramatic beauty. Clanwilliam and Citrusdal with its towering mountains, brilliant purple and orange sunsets, laden with the scent of orange blossom in the spring. Lambertsbaai and Elandsbaai, with their perfect waves for surfing, offer open air restaurants serving only the best of our seafood and have an abundance of bird life to be spotted. Wupperthal and Elandskloof, both missionary villages situated within these magnificent mountains, both have a wealth of history to be discovered.
 
Enjoy the beauty of the Cederberg in your own way: walk in the mountains with not another person in sight, enjoy bouldering and climbling at Rocklands; go and discover the beautiful bird life or get your surf on; swim in the clear mountain rock pools or marvel at the delicate Bushman rock art. Or simply relax and enjoy the exhilarating peace of this unspoilt paradise. The Cederberg has an exceptional botanical diversity, being part of the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa, and among the twisted rock formations, farmers cultivate the world-famous healthy rooibos tea, found only in the Cederberg of South Africa.

WALKS & HIKES IN THE CENTRAL CEDERBERG

Clanwilliam

Contact Algeria - Cape Nature 027 482 2403

The central Cederberg has some stunning walks of which only a few are mentioned here. Given this glorious wilderness, you need to be well-prepared both in terms of food & water and sun protection.  It can be fiercely hot in high summer, yet in contrast there can also be snow on the mountain peaks in the winter! We outline some short, morning and full day hikes… Shorter walks – under 2 hours Allow 50 minutes to get to Algeria Forest Station if you are staying in Clanwilliam or Citrusdal area; allow 1½ hours to get to Dwarsrivier … Algeria Forest Station - valley walk Note: This area was badly burnt in early 2009 but it is starting to recover This a very pleasant gentle walk from Algeria up the valley towards Uitkyk. The path is clearly signposted from the end of the campsite. (When the path to the waterfall goes off to the left, you continue straight on to a grove of pine trees.) You can walk along the valley as far as you’d like and then return Algeria Forest Station - waterfall Walk This is a short, moderate climb from Algeria Forest Station up to Middelberg waterfall. The path is clearly signposted from the end of the campsite. When you are almost at the height of the waterfall, the path forks.
