Secrets of the Cederberg

Cederberg getaways

As the sun starts to warm the pristine spring days, thawing out the hibernation of a chilly winter, you may feel the desire to break away from the constraints of the concrete city and head out into the country. A mere 250km from Cape Town, nestled at the foot of the majestic Cederberg mountains, lies the antiquated town of Clanwilliam

Home to Rooibos, rock art and, of course, the much-anticipated annual Namaqualand flowers, Clanwilliam is a the perfect place to bring colour back into your life. Fill your days with walks through the mountains, swims in the enticing oasis that is the Clanwilliam Dam, or venture into town for a taste of the local flavour (don't be surprised if you're greeted over the weekend by the enticing smells of the local 'roosterbrood' – aka toasted bread – that is braaied to perfection on the sidewalks). Deemed South Africa's seventh-oldest town, Clanwilliam is steeped in history and is cloaked in a wonderful heritage just waiting for you to discover. The gateway to the start of a fantastical journey, one that showcases Mother Nature's raw, rugged talent for colourful artistry. Welcome to Namaqualand: welcome to Clanwilliam.
