Cederberg Wilderness Trails

The Cederberg Wilderness Area had been on my radar ever since I cycled to Cape Town five years ago. I missed out on it that time, in favour of taking the coastal route. Having had a wonderful six weeks previously exploring Namibia’s dirt and gravel tracks, my cycling...

It’s just over two weeks since we arrived in Cape Town, ready to begin our long ride home. We’ve covered some 1,400 kilometres and are now further away than when we set off. That’s because, after a little detour to the Cederberg Wilderness Area, we...
