Cederberg Ridge

Situated 4km from Clanwilliam, this stylish ‘away-from-it-all’ experience is within easy reach of Cape Town and the Winelands. Cederberg Ridge is a luxurious wilderness lodge offering excellent food, hospitality and adventure. It overlooks the panorama of the Cederberg Mountains with its unique raw, rugged beauty.

Cederberg Ridge introduces the natural beauty and hidden gems of the Cederberg through a range of experiences – both for the active and the more laid-back. Untamed wide open spaces and charming rural hospitality of the Cederberg offers an authentic mix of San culture, Settler history and rural traditions. Famous for its hiking, stunning spring flowers, unusual sandstone rock formations and ancient rock art sites, the Cederberg is also home to a range of local wine estates.

With winter temperatures often ranging between 22oC and 24oC, the Cederberg region experiences a much sunnier winter climate compared to anywhere else in the Western Cape. This allows for time and ease throughout the year to enjoy the many activities offered on and off site. Take in the stunning panoramic mountain views and other natural attractions of the Cederberg while walking or mountain biking. Participate in water activities provided at the Clanwilliam dam or go canoeing on the adjacent farm's dam. Pamper yourself and unwind with a spa treatment then in the evening enjoy stoytelling around the fire pit whist gazing at the stars.

The Cederberg is perfectly positioned for a Cape circuit tour as it is only 2+ hours from the Winelands, 2½ hours from Cape Town and 3½ to 4 hours from Hermanus or Swellendam. It is also the perfect stopping off point if you are heading north to either Namibia or the Kalahari.


Cederberg Ridge is within an easy 2 ½ hour drive from Cape Town or the Winelands and  4km (5 minutes drive) from Clanwilliam
