The CEDERBERG, so other worldly and yet so easily accessible from Cape Town, weaves a particular magic. These mountains are unlike any others in South Africa. The geography can be confusing but with this map you can explore the secret kloofs, ethereal rock art and majestic mountains, experiencing the magic for yourself.
This latest edition of the map now extends northwards to the Hantam and Knersvlakte flower-fields – Vanrhynsdorp, Nieuwoudtville, Loeriesfontein and Calvinia.
One should not visit the area without this map or one might well miss some of the wonderful features of this truly magnificent area. – Ronnie Hazell
Compiled from comprehensive field research – we have driven just about every road and track – this map is an essentialcompanion to any exploration of the area. The conversations we have had with local people – farmers, shepherds, leopard researchers, archaeologists, rock art experts, botanists, climbers and hikers – have given us knowledge and insight into every aspect of this wonderful area. That’s why this map is packed with information and detail.
