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 11 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.

                                                          This establishment is fantastic in almost every way. Quaint accomodation and fantastic views of the Cedarberg. But oh that meal. 3 course meal, but made with no love. The biltong soup had a sour taste, the beef stroganoff was a tasteless stew. Blocks of beef in a watery liquid, thats not stroganoff. And the cheesecake was still frozen. Why o why did we not self cater with a cabin that had every convenience one could wish for? Overall a great stay, but the meal served for R220 each really put a dampner on the stay.

                                                          The lodge was very clean and the dinner and the braeckfast excellent.

                                                          Everything was above average, even the pots and pans and cutlery. You could put heaters in the bathroom , it was quite cold

                                                          Four blissful days in paradise. We stayed in Taaibos the six of us, all over 70. The accommodation was perfect, the outlook sublime, the river in all its moods was a joy to behold. Water a little cold for swimming but we managed to get our feet wet. We had two superb walks The first to the lookout point. The vistas were spectacular. Our second walk took us to the waterfall and we were not disappointed,long cascading fall of water into a large and deep pool. We should have taken a picnic with us! Altogether a wonderful four days. I would recommend a stay at Mount Ceder Lodge to everyone who...
