Cederberg Heritage Route

The Cederberg Heritage Route is a collection of four community-based walking trails in the Cederberg mountains. The walking trails (ranging from 3 to 5 nights) include your overnight luggage transportation (by donkey cart or vehicle) so that walkers only carry a day pack on the walks. Historically the Cederberg Wilderness offered walkers a stark choice – between taking day walks into the mountains (thus restricting them to more accessible shorter walks), or taking a pack and camping out in the very basic forestry huts.
