Rooi Cederberg Karoo Park

Rooi Cederberg Karoo Park

The Red Cederberg Karoo Park is known by few. It was formed in 2011 with the signing of a memorandum of understanding by seven farms (including parts of Cape Nature’s Matjiesrivier, Wildehondskloof and Vyfhoek).

The park lies in the eastern Red (Rooi) Cederberg – a name long used by the locals to distinguish the drier red rusted surfaces of the sandstone cliffs of the eastern Cederberg, from the greener western parts of the mountain range.

It describes the eastern escarpment of the Cederberg Wilderness, and is part of the Cape Floristic Region World Heritage Site. Read More »
