Swimming

Swimming

The rivers and streams in the Cederberg offer ample opportunities for swimming.

Plunge into a rock pool on a hot summer’s day or after a long hike in the mountains or just relax next to a river or swimming pool at the campsites.

During holidays most facilities do not accommodate day visitors; please check in at the office before making use of swimming areas at accommodation facilities.

Make sure that you know a rock pool before you dive in to prevent unnecessary injuries when accidently hitting a rock under water.

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.
