This tour is ideal for nature-lovers who want to get away from the tourist hordes. You can enjoy it both as a self-drive trip (Price shown here), or as a private guided tour.

This tour is easily combined with Cape Town in the south. The Cedarberg & West Coast Explorer tour gives you a flavour of the Cederberg mountains with its dramatic natural beauty, fascinating San (Bushmen) rock art as well as a taste of traditional West Coast hospitality. Afterward, you could extend the tour to include the Whale Coast, Winelands, or Sanbona Game Reserve if you wish.

You begin by meandering through the Cape Winelands to the picturesque town of Tulbagh. You continue via Ceres into the high Cedarberg mountains to spend the first night at Mount Ceder. Enjoy gentle walks, the rockpools of Maalgat and Stadsaal caves with their ancient rock art.

Continue to the picturesque old town of Clanwilliam for 2 nights. Then head to the West Coast visiting Bird Island at Lamberts Bay before continuing south on the coastal road to the picturesque fishing town of Paternoster. Here you can enjoy beach walks, the Columbine Nature reserve and enjoy a traditional West Coast seafood restaurant on the beach.

On the final day you continue your exploration as you visit the wild beauty of the West Coast National Park and the turquoise waters of Langebaan lagoon before returning to Cape Town in the late afternoon.

Tailor-Make this Tour

The self drive option includes meals and accommodation as specified above as well as car rental (Group L SUV vehicle with GPS).

It can be offered as a private tour (ideally for 4 people or more) as it is rather expensive for only 2 people. However, contact us for a quote if you wish. The private tour price includes vehicle, SA tour-registered guide, park fees and entrances. But lunches and the final dinner are for your own account.

You can add an extra night at Mount Ceder or on the West Coast to make it more leisurely. Plus we can add on the hotel of your choice in Cape Town or the Winelands. Also check out our Spring Wild Flower tour.
