Cederberg Accommodation or Citrusdal Accommodation far in advance. Citrusdal info takes you to 22 km away and further from all the main attactions of the Cederberg. Cederberg Accommodation puts you in the heart of all the action... its up to you.
self catering cottage at Keurbos about 50km from where we wanted to stay. The advantage of this was, we were forced to enjoy the majority of the cederberg valley from Clanwilliam, pass Algeria, right up to the heart of the Cederberg. The cost was R350 per night for a cottage that sleeps 5, with electricity.
A very detailed description of the Wolfberg Cracks and Wolfberg Arch Hike can be found in all the posts connecting to this link.
You need a permit to hike this route, and on the permit is the code to get into the gate. I take no responsibility for information shared on this blog, but I do hope it will help you to enjoy this hike as much as we have always done. Take plenty of water and always something warm for the unpredictable cold wind at the top.
Once you have parked your car (see the carpark below), the clearly marked path will take you to the top. This massive square rock is your halfway landmark to the top.
When you are ready to move on, follow the loooong passage on the left behind me.
The final obstacle of this walk is where you need to reverse your body into a hole and wiggle your way under a fallen rock, to get back onto the now very walkable path.
The way back down is to head about 50m outside of the cracks and then turn left. Follow the path back down.
From here, give yourself about 1h30min to get back down.
A romantic full moon greeted us as we drove out of the Sandrift area...
Route co-ordinates can be obtained if you contact me.
Alternative Route to get to the Cederberg (and much easier than the other one which I wrote about in my other posts) is the following:
Take the N7 to Citrusdal.
Pass Citrusdal about 25km and then turn right onto the Algeria road.
This road will take you through the Nieuwoudts pass... stunning and easy driving.
Once you have reached the top of the Uitkykpass, you will be about 20km from the Wolfberg Cracks.
Keep your eyes open for a view of the Wolfberg Cracks in the mountain on your left, which is about in the middle of the image of the sheep above.
Remember to stop at the Sandrift Farm to get your permits during office hours.
