Settler Culture

Experience the rich biodiversity and cultural assets of Cederberg’s Heuningvlei village and live with the families of this 1830 settlement. You will become immersed in this historical experience of a bygone era and, whilst overnighting in their cottages, you will also get to enjoy the delights of traditional homemade meals.

Get to know how the world famous Rooibos tea is grown and harvested, whilst appreciating that everything is accomplished without the aid of modern technology.

Heuningvlei is the most northerly village in the Cederberg Wilderness, and is located in an area of pristine fynbos and the rare and endangered cedar tree.
