It’s a great wilderness area with majestic views, amazing Spring flowers (August and September), and rugged hikes – perfect for the young and not-so young.
How you enjoy the beauty of Mount Ceder is up to you: walk in the mountains with no one around, enjoy clambering over the unique rock formations; swim in the perennial river with the kids or marvel at the delicate Bushman rock art. Of course, you could just simply relax and enjoy the exhilarating peace of this unspoilt paradise from the luxury of your house or cottage. At the end of an activity-filled day, settle down to a relaxing drink on your veranda, or enjoy a wholesome 3-course meal at the Old Millhouse restaurant, accompanied by superb wine from the region.
