About Mount Ceder Lodge

Mount Ceder Lodge in the Cederberg Mountains is a perfect destination for a weekend away, offering visitors a host of exciting accommodation and activity options. Located in a valley, surrounded by rugged and arrestingly dramatic mountains, Mount Ceder is situated on the main route through the Cederberg range.

The lodge features 12 fully equipped self-catering houses sleeping two to six people, as well as three lovely campsites. All houses are fully equipped with linen, towels, cutlery, crockery a fridge, stove, and microwave. There is also a fireplace inside and a braai/BBQ area outside each House. Firewood available for purchase and a cleaning service is available on request.

The Old Mill House Restaurant provides hearty dinners, breakfasts and light lunches if you don't feel like cooking, and the little on-site store supplies essentials as well as local extra virgin olive oil, kalamata olives and fruit products. Mount Ceder has so much to offer such as hiking, river swimming, canoeing, mountain biking, and exploring the local rock art.

The Cederberg region is only two and a half hours from Cape Town and yet the landscape is completely different from that of the Mother City; it is wilder and warmer, with a raw dramatic beauty. The dominating characteristic of the area is sharply defined sandstone rock formations, often reddish in colour. This group of rocks contains bands of shale and in recent years, a few important fossils have been discovered in these argillaceous layers. Farmers also cultivate the world-famous healthy rooibos tea, found only in the Cederberg of South Africa, and a visit to a rooibos farm is a delightful addition to a day trip from Mount Ceder.

                                                              I spent a night in Melkbos cottage after 2 days camping in the Cederberg.It was just what I needed...The cotage has everything you need and such a nice view on the olive grove and mountains...The staff is very proffessional and friendly and offered me to deliver my dinner in my cottage as I was the only guest at the restaurant that evening. Eating good and fresh food with such a vien in the sunset light was such a treat...In regards to activity, I swam and kayaked in the river. The stretch is not that long, but it is refreshing and very peacefull.A picnic at the waterfall after a 20 minutes...

                                                              Perfect camping spot, with shade, private bathroom and scullery with gas stove and lockable food trunk. The river for swimming and kayaking is about 2km away, and there are beautiful walks nearby. We spent 3 wonderful nights and will return for sure.

                                                              We loved the remote location and wilderness. The conservation area is simply spectacular, and the river, with its substantial swimming pools, broke the heat of the day. Gladson and his team were willing to help with every request, and the main restaurant area had a lovely ambience with superb views. The little antelope grazing around the cottages were the cherry on top!
