NCN56 Day 01: Cape Town – Cederberg Region

Cape Town – Cederberg Mountain Region, South Africa

We depart from Cape Town and are given one last opportunity to stop in Table View to take in the exquisite view of the iconic Table Mountain. On our way we will be treated to a delicious wine tasting. Upon arrival at our lodging for the evening, we are given a full briefing of our tour by our resident guides. Enjoy an optional traditional meal this evening at our overnight stop.

The Cederberg Mountains and nature reserve are situated nearby Clan Willliam. They were named after the endangered ancient Clanwilliam Cedar trees which are indigenous to the area, growing up to heights of over 1500 metres. The mountains spread up to 50 kilometres both north and south, and up to 20 kilometres both east and west with the highest summit within the range being Sneeuberg at 2028 metres. This region is comprised of intense sandstone rock formations, usually various shades of red in colour. The Cederberg Wilderness Area is renowned for containing incredible ancient San rock art. It is also well-known for the discovery of significant fossils, specifically within recent years. These fossils are of primitive fish and can be dated back almost 450 million years to the Ordovician Period.
