The Cederberg

The Cederberg mountain range lies some 250km north of Cape Town and extends southwards from just south of the Pakhuis Pass near Clanwilliam to the Middelberg Pass near Citrusdal. It is some 130 000 hectares in extent of which 71 000 ha comprise the Cederberg Wilderness Area managed by CapeNature. It is renowned for its spectacular landscapes and rock formations as well as the increasingly rare Clanwilliam Cedar Tree, from which it got its name. The Senior Scout Adventure is held within this huge stretch of rugged mountains, wide vlaktes, and spectacular kloofs with the altitude varying from 300m to 2028m on top of Sneeuberg.

The original inhabitants of the Cederberg area were the hunter-gatherers and the Khoi. Evidence of the occupation by the Khoi may be seen in the rock art of the area which is one of the richest regions of southern African rock art, with an estimated 2000 or more painting sites.

The Cederberg boasts diverse and largely unspoilt plant habitats, which provide shelter and hunting grounds for various fauna, such as Leopard and Black Eagle. The Olifant’s River system, part of which runs through the Cederberg Wilderness, has a wealth of endemic fish species. Bird watchers can view more than 100 bird species at the reserve, such as Rock Kestrel and Jackal Buzzard.
