The Cederberg is a leisure playground for hundreds of hikers, rock climbers, cyclists and holiday makers and home to hundreds of farm labourers, their families and farm pensioners. Many researchers roam the mountains studying the sensitive habitat of flora and fauna. People and animals use the roads day and night and are often not visible if a vehicle comes hurtling round a bend at high speed.
We regard 60kph as our speed limit, so we kindly ask you to stick to this limit out of respect for this beautiful environment and its inhabitants.
