Multi day hiking in the Cederberg Wilderness area
I have just returned from a fantastic 3 days in the Cederberg Wilderness area. A mere 3 hours drive from Cape Town this extensive area offers a multitude of amazing trails of various difficulty. It is also rich with Bushman art which always offers an interesting distraction for an afternoon off or even on some of the trails itself.
Ridgway Ramblers offer a 3 day get away into this wonderful area. Camping or chalet accommodation is available.
The first days hike is to the Maltese Cross. This is a moderate 3 to 4 hour hike through amazing terrain to a large monolithic rock formation that totally dominates the area. As you follow a stream for much of the route there is a possibility to swim or at least splash cool water into your face along the way.
