Cederberg Accommodation: Cute Towns To Visit
At The Baths in Citrusdal, you can enjoy the beautiful hot springs and rock pools. It’s quite magical if you visit between April and mid-May when the seasonal workers are preparing for the citrus picking season. South Africa is the second largest exporter of citrus in the world, making this the perfect place to enjoy the sweet and juicy citrus fruit.
Nestled between the jagged mountains, lies the quaint little town of Clanwilliam. Join the Sevilla Rock Art Trail to discover interesting Khoi-San rock art, dating back to a thousand years ago.
Surf’s up! Lambertsbaai and Elandsbaai are two of the best surfing locations in the Cederberg area. Located close to the beach, you can be sure to enjoy freshly prepared seafood at one of the many local restaurants.
Cederberg Camping: Where To Go
Craving a relaxing resort-style holiday? Camp next to Bulshoek Dam at Rondeberg Resort – a brilliant location for boating and skiing. The cosy camping and caravan site is quite popular among travelers, but if you prefer self-catering accommodation make sure to book in advance.
If you’re an avid rock climber, stay at De Pakhuys. The campsite is in the shade next to the water. Perfect for those hot summer months.
Go for a hike, spot a clear mountain rock pool and take a dip! Surrounded by nature, the Cederberg is anything from dull and dreary. On the contrary, it’s the ideal place to break away from the everyday hustle and bustle of your urban lifestyle.
