Cederberg Guided Hikes | Multi-Day Backpacking Adventures

If you’re looking to visit the Cederberg Wilderness for an extended backpacking adventure, be sure to check out any of our Cederberg guided hikes and backpacking adventures. From hiking Sneeuberg to our Central Cederberg Circuit Hike, Crystal Pools backpacking to the Maltese Cross, and Wolfberg Arch, we’ve got options for all interests, time frames, and fitness levels. Whether you’re looking for a two day or seven-day adventure, our experienced guides have extensive knowledge of the Cederberg Wilderness area and how to give you the best backpacking trip experience possible. In addition to offering clients many of the more famous routes, our Cederberg Guide Service will also lead clients on lesser-known routes and areas and “secrets” that we have found over the years, such as the secret pool below a well-known waterfall. On all our adventures, we teach the principle of “Leave No Trace” ethics, and on request, other adventure skills such as map reading, compass reading, survival skills, ecology, geology, and camp cooking, just to name a few. If the best backpacking in the Cederberg is on your bucket list, let us help you find the adventure that fits your individual needs.
