Forget the world in the Cederberg Mountains

(Self-drive / Road Tripping)

Switch off and get back to nature in this wilderness of Rocky Mountains and ancient Khoisan art. The Cederberg escarpment is a rocky, alien-looking mountain range just 200 kilometers from Cape Town. Here you will find the largest collection of ancient Khoisan rock art in Southern Africa—a veritable ‘Louvre of Africa’.

The Cederberg is also a paradise for hikers, and you can spend days getting lost in the mountains, among the dramatic, wind-carved sandstone formations like the Maltese Cross and the Wolfberg Arch.

Other activities range from rock climbing, to swimming in rock pools, visiting a Rooibos tea farm and camping in the many remote sites throughout the wilderness area.
