Who Enjoys the Cederberg Mountains and Kagga Kamma’s Accommodation?
In South Africa, there are no massive mountain ranges like the Himalayas, Alps, and Andes, with record-breaking high peaks that intrepid mountaineers who felt compelled to conquer.
Such compulsion is illustrated by the words of the late George Mallory, who attempted to summit Mount Everest almost 100 years ago, dying during his last attempt. Mallory said: “because it’s there”, when asked why he wanted to summit this legendary mountain.
Nonetheless, the fact that our country does not feature such monumental mountains does not detract in any way from the haunting beauty of the mountains that do make up the diverse landscapes of South Africa, notably the exceptionally unique Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape Province, a little way inland from the West Coast and its quaint fishermen’s villages.
Nature Lovers Love the Cederberg
This may beg the question about why people who love nature also love the Cederberg Mountains. One likely answer may well be the same as Mallory’s – “because it is there”. There is no other place quite like the Cederberg. It is wild, remote, and rugged, with no pretence at being anything else. One has an additional, overriding sense and feeling of a truly ancient place with early inhabitants as old as time itself here, in the Cederberg.
This special sensation is particularly enhanced by the Cederberg’s weirdly shaped rock formations that punctuate the vista over its wide landscapes that for millennia, have gazed upon the mountains in the blue, blue distance, on the faraway horizon.
