Cederberg Region

The region offers a rich natural heritage, fruit-filled valleys and towering mountains. The beautiful Olifants River Valley, with its snaking irrigation canals, sustains a large citrus industry which is a hive of activity during the winter harvest time. This is also Rooibos tea country, being the only place in the world where the bush, producing this healthy beverage, is grown.

San rock art can be viewed. Hike amongst the spectacular rock formations or cool off in the clear mountain rock pools of the spectacular Cederberg Wilderness Reserve. Wupperthal is a picturesque Moravian Mission Station in the heart of these mountains. A feeling of calm peacefulness envelopes one on arrival in this serene valley.

Down on the coast you can relax on the unspoilt sandy beaches of Lamberts and Elands Bay where whales and dolphins can be spotted from August to November. Not to be missed is the famous Bird Island at Lamberts Bay, with its thousands of cormorants and gannets. These coastal towns are also renowned for angling and crayfish diving. During August and September the spectacular spring wild flowers are a sight to behold. There are also numerous good birding sites along the beautiful wetland area of Verlorenvlei.
