Mount Ceder has so much to offer: hiking, river-swimming, canoeing, mountain biking, as well as exploring the local rock art.
The Cederberg region is only two and a half hours from Cape Town and yet the landscape is completely different from that of the Mother City: wilder, warmer with a raw, dramatic beauty.
The mountain range is named after the endangered Clanwilliam Cedar (Widdringtonia cedarbergensis), which is a tree endemic to the area. The mountains are noted for dramatic rock formations and San rock art.
The dominating characteristic of the area is sharply defined sandstone rock formations (Table Mountain group), often reddish in colour. This group of rocks contains bands of shale and in recent years a few important fossils have been discovered in these argillaceous layers. The fossils are of primitive fish and date back 450 million years to the Ordovician Period.
The Cederberg has an exceptional botanical diversity, being part of the Cape Floral Kingdom of South Africa, and among the twisted rock formations, farmers cultivate the world-famous healthy rooibos tea, found only in the Cederberg of South Africa. A visit to a rooibos farm is a delightful addition to a day trip from Mount Ceder.
