Cederberg Mountains

South Africa

DESTINATIONS > Africa > South Africa > Cederberg Mountains

250kms to the north of Cape Town, the rugged Cederberg Mountains region is one of the most scenic areas in all of South Africa, but much undervisited – a real bonus for those who make the trip up here to spend a few days exploring.

The area is characterised by craggy mountain ranges, vast open plains and is dotted with caves and shelters which are full of ancient rock art sites – known as petroglyphs. Dating back to the era when the Khoisan Bushmen lived in the area, they are a glimpse into Africa’s varied and fascinating history and are a must-see when visiting the Cederberg.

Visitors flock to the region during August and September when the spring flowers bloom in all manner of colours and shapes on the plains close to the small town of Clanwilliam. The drab brown of the plains is transformed during these months and the spectacle attracts keen botanists and photographers from all over the world.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
