Unfortunately, we were there on a Sunday, which means almost everything is closed. We did luckily find a wonderful restaurant called Smul and had the most amazing burgers and service there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Citrusdal.

Okay. 3 out of 5

More info about Citrusdal

Citrusdal is reached from Cape Town via the ultra-scenic Piekenierskloof Pass. On the approach to Citrusdal heading down the pass, the magnificent Cederberg Mountains is seen in the background, the 2km high snow-capped Sneeuberg Peak the standout feature, with the town in a sunken valley below.

The town was first established in 1916 as a parish to farmers in the area. Prior to this, farmers would have to travel many miles by ox wagon to attend formal church gatherings.  

Citrusdal is a major citrus producing area, the climate and location ideal for this fruit genus. However, the town is probably better known for its hot springs and is included in both the rooibos and wildflower routes. The town is also a final destination for visitors wanting to experience the Cederberg Mountains.

While the entrance to the town is unremarkable, dig a little deeper exploring the town and surrounding area and you will find it’s a worthwhile stop for any traveller to the region.

 

Top 8 reasons to visit Citrusdal

1. Visit the Citrusdal museum to see the many interesting Khoi tools and Trekboer (travelling farmer) exhibits on display. The museum is housed in an old stone church and alongside is the Tourism Bureau, also in an historic house, offering advice and bookings to the Cederberg.

2. Travel to the Cederberg Wilderness Area to attempt rock climbing and hiking through the Cederberg Mountains. Beautiful landscapes, unusual rock formations, rock pools and scarce flora are some of the highlights of the area.

3. Take a self-guided hike along the Sevilla Rock Art Trail to view the many fascinating and diverse San ochre-coloured paintings, some thousands of years old. Stop in for a refreshing drink at Traveller's Rest after the hike.

4. Mountain bikers enjoy the 26km Boschkloof MTB Trail, graded as difficult due to the hectic single-track downhill to test even the... Show more
