About Cederberg Mountains

Despite being a mere two hours from Cape Town, the landscape of Cederberg is dramatically different. Boulders and cliffs loom in from all angles while the wild flora blossoms freely throughout the region. The area also has a rich and diverse selection of wildlife, which includes mountain zebras and klipspringers (a small rock-climbing antelope) as well as majestic leopards and several different species of birds of prey. For those looking to immerse themselves in the wilderness and reconnect with nature, the Cederberg Mountains are the perfect destination.
