The perfect weekend destination from Cape Town, Mount Ceder in the Cederberg Mountains, offers visitors a host of exciting accommodation options. In a valley, surrounded by rugged and arrestingly dramatic mountains, Mount Ceder is found on the main route through the Cederberg range. 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 unspoiled paradise from the luxury of your house. 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 Mill House restaurant, accompanied by superb wine from the region
