The Cederberg is a unique and breathtakingly beautiful area, filled with interesting fauna and flora that are sure to captivate nature enthusiasts of all levels.

One of the best ways to experience the Cederberg is through sight-seeing, where you can explore the area’s natural beauty at your own pace. From the rugged rock formations and towering cliffs to the lush valleys and crystal-clear streams, there’s no shortage of breathtaking scenery to admire.

The Cederberg is home to a variety of plant and animal species that are found nowhere else in the world. Keep an eye out for the Cape mountain zebra, klipspringer, and rock hyrax, as well as an array of bird species, including the striking Verreaux’s eagle. There are also a number of fascinating plant species to be discovered, such as the rare snow protea, found only in this region.

We encourage all visitors to leave the area as they found it, and to be mindful of the environment. The Cederberg is a precious ecosystem, and we are committed to preserving it for future generations to enjoy.

While sight-seeing in the Cederberg, it’s important to be aware of the presence of snakes in the area. While encounters are rare, it’s always best to stay on designated paths and keep an eye out for any signs of snakes.

After a day of exploring, there’s no better place to unwind than at our restaurant and farm stall. Enjoy a delicious meal made with fresh local ingredients, and browse our selection of drinks, books, and souvenirs. Our friendly staff are always on hand to help you plan your next adventure in the Cederberg.

Come and discover the magic of sight-seeing in the Cederberg with Traveller’s Rest as your guide. We guarantee that you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and in awe of the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us.
