You have to buy a pass at the info centre in Algeria, where they provide you a permit and the code to the padlock to enter the Caves and rock art area. (Maybe this is because this is low tourist season?). You drive about 40km on gravel roads so best... More

Go seek the caves and walk around. Definitely you would love it.If you don't have a lot of time to enjoy the Cederberg, just come here. But remember buy the permits first. You can buy the permits from Dwarsriver Farm.
