Cederberg, South Africa – Bushmans Kloof

This award-winning reserve is home to over 130 San rock art sites set in the wilderness of the Cederberg Mountains north of Cape Town. Top-notch services, food, accommodation and guides make this the ultimate place to explore the world of some of the first humans to record their world for posterity. Although not technically a part of the rift valley, it is this record of early humans that ties in with our story of ancient Africa so well.

It is also botanically rich and home to an array of endemic birds and mammals. Hiking, biking, canoeing or game driving – guided or not is an absolute pleasure here.
