The Cederberg mountains are only two hours away from Cape Town and yet the landscape is completely different: wilder, warmer with a raw, dramatic beauty. Towering mountains, brilliant purple and orange at sunset drive hundreds of people here every year. The majestic Cederberg is a 100 km long mountain range offering spectacular rock formations such as the Stadsaal caves and Lot's Wife as well as bushmen rock art. During a adventure trip anywhere between 3 -5 days you can not only explore all of these, but also enjoy several of the classic mountain hikes, including the Maltese Cross, the Wolfberg Cracks & Arch and Sneeuberg. The accomodation will be provided in chalets, in the Sanddrif holiday resort, an ideal easily accessible and remote base for nature lovers and adventurers.
For the more adventurous and experienced hikers, we offer a 3 - 5 days trekking option, spent in the midst of the South African wilderness. The mountain range is well known for its characteristic jagged sandstone, richly coloured by iron oxides to a deep orange, as well as its rock formations and Bushmen rock paintings. Most of the Cederberg is a designated Wilderness Area (83,000 ha) and is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom which is a World Heritage Site. The outdoor experience starts at Algeria, ascending towards the Middleberg Huts with an overnight at the Spout Cave, a picturesque shelter. The path will lead your steps to the Wolfberg Arch via Tafelberg, then descending to Wolfberg Cracks towards Sanddrif, making for an awesome adventure.
