Roads

The Cederberg can be accessed from the N7 or from Ceres via the Koue Bokkeveld side – via a good gravel road. On the N7 approximately 28 km from either Citrusdal or Clanwilliam you will find the Cederberg turn-off. The area can also be accessed from Wupperthal.

Alternative gravel roads exist from Clanwilliam and Citrusdal when the Olifantsriver is in flood. During winter contact your accommodation destination to enquire about the conditions of roads and rivers before departing for the Cederberg.

Although roads in the area are generally dirt roads they can be travelled on by normal sedan cars. The condition of the roads and river crossings may vary depending on the time of the year.

The road between Matjiesrivier Nature Reserve and Wupperthal is very rocky and it is advised that this road is attempted with a bakkie (pick-up) rather than your sedan car.

About Cederberg Conservancy

  • 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.
