Simply a “must see”, a veritable natural phenomenon. If you’re a photographer, you could be here all day. One of the many gems waiting to be discovered in the Cederberg. Permit - R60 per person.

We did not expect to see such a beauty on the top of Cederberg Mountain. The caves and the Rock Art are something that everybody must see.

This place is definitely off the beaten track - about 50km along a gravel track. We didn't have a 4x4 so it was slow going (~1hour plus) from the main road, but would be much faster in a 4x4. We stopped at Algeria forest station...More

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the Stadsaal caves. We were fortunate enough to be there for about an hour or two almost entirely on our own and it was a very special experience for us. Although the main cave is like something out of...More

Amazing rock formations that takes some time to take in. There is always a better angle for a better photo. Have been there many a time since childhood but it still amazes me. Unfortunately we also have a couple of fools over the years that...More

A short (11km) drive from Sanddrif. Kids loved to explore. Cave painting was good although not really worth the trip by itself. Stunning views and rock formations. Definitely worth a visit if you are already at Cederberg vineyard.
