The Cederberg Conservancy was constituted in 1997 as a voluntary agreement between landowners to manage the environment in a sustainable manner. It consolidates 22 properties in the central Cederberg as one of the core corridors of the Greater Cederberg Biodiversity Corridor and it is active through quarterly meetings and awareness days.
Visitors to the area can engage in bird watching or easy hikes to the Stadsaal cave and Elephant rock art. For the more adventurous visitor the Conservancy offers Mountain bike trails or overnight hiking trials that vary from one to five nights, depending on your level of fitness and ability.
The Conservancy is the proud custodian of the Clanwilliam Cedar tree (Widdringtonia cedarbergensis) and offers refuge to the rare Cape Leopard.
The isolated and relatively under-developed area of about 182 000 hectares is safe to visit and offers visitors a variety of activities and accommodation ranging from basic camping to fully catered luxury facilities, with the associated range in prices. Accommodation is available at the sites listed below in alphabetical order. Please refer to the map of the Cederberg Conservancy for locations and contact the particular establishment for further information or to make a booking.
