The Cederberg Wilderness District is a vast area stretching roughly 400 km South to North and varying from 50km to 200km West to East. There are numerous hiking routes that very often link up with each other, stretching over the entire terrain, some of which are on private land and some of which are reserve territory, managed by Cape Nature. Two of the most popular trails are the Wolfberg Cracks & Arch Trail and the Maltese Cross Trail, both defined by the awe inspiring rock formations that give the trails their names. For this reason we base ourselves at one of the resorts in the area – Sanddrif or Kromrivier – and take day walks out onto these trail as well as one or two other options, including visits to rock art paintings in the area. It is possible to spent a few weeks exploring the area, but the trails are usually limited to three or four days.he Table Mountain Trail provides one of the rare opportunities to spend the night in comfort, high up on the slopes of Table Mountain. The Overseers Cottage, situated on the 'Back' Table of the Mountain is a fully serviced overnight facility where we gather around the fire to enjoy a traditional South African 'braai' (barbeque). It is a two day / one night hike that starts in the world renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and finishes at the lower cable station, after visiting the top of Table Mountain. The paths are generally well defined and clear but can be difficult to follow in heavy mist or rain.
