Cederberg Wilderness Area

The Cederberg was proclaimed a wilderness area in 1973, and as such enjoys the highest possible conservation status. This vast area stretches from the Middelberg Pass at Citrusdal to north of the Pakhuis Pass at Clanwilliam, encompassing some 71000 ha of rugged, mountainous terrain.

The Cederberg mountains are part of the Cape folded mountain series and consist mainly of Table Mountain sandstone. Weathered sandstone formations, most notably the Wolfberg Arch and the Maltese Cross, are typical of the Cederberg. The mountains fall within the catchment area of the Cape fynbos region. The Cederberg Wilderness Area offers unsurpassed opportunities for recreation. In the primitive wilderness, away from city bustle, one finds space and peace. Activities which are compatible with the wilderness atmosphere, such as hiking and rock climbing, are encouraged.

For the camping enthusiast the Algeria Forest Station is highly recommendable. It lies approx. 40 kms north of Citrusdal. The 46 tent- and caravan-sites are situated along the banks of the Rondegat River. Warm and cold water is available but no electricity and no shopping facilities. Bookings and enquiries:
