This region is located approximately 300 kms from Cape Town. Driving along the N7 freeway from Cape Town to Namibia the Cederberg region will be on your right.
The N7 freeway forms the boundary of this region on the west. The provincial boundary marks the northern boundary. The R355 joins up with the R46 and these two roads form the eastern edge. Then the boundary follows the R43 to Worcester. It then turns south along the N1 freeway and skirts the town of Paarl onto the R45. In the town of Malmesbury the map edge joins up with the N7 again.
The Cederberg Mountains and nature reserve dominate this region. You will be in awe of the spectacular rock formation here. The dusty roads leading through the mountains will challenge your driving skills, but the natural beauty will leave you speechless. If you are looking for a space on the water's edge, look no further than the Clanwilliam Dam. The dam has become a popular watersport and fishing destination.
Town and Cities
The area around the Cederberg mountains is a very fertile agricultural area. And for this reason the towns here are typical farming towns. Clanwilliam is the largest city within this region. .
The most major road here is the national N7 freeway. This is the main arterial route between Cape Town and the border of Namibia. Due to the mainly mountainous region, there are few tarred roads outside the towns and cities. There are numerous mountains passes that criss-cross this region. The "Uitkyk" pass and the "Middelberg" pass can become quite challenging during the rainy season and at the end of the hot summer season when the sand becomes deeper. Many camping sites are located off either of these two passes.
Summers are very hot and dry, while the winters are wet and cold . The higher peaks receive a dusting of snow in winter. Summer days are typically clear and cloudless. Due to the clear skies most of the year, it makes an excellent location for stargazing.
