Cederberg Herotage Trail slackpacking add on from Cederberg Wilderness Lodge
Why not add on the Cederberg Heritage Trail - a 2 day 1 night slackpacking trail - onto your stay at Cederberg Ridge?

We have joined forces with the Cederberg Heritage Route to offer you a slack-packing adventure.   (Slackpacking is a play on 'backpacking' as there is no carrying of bags on a slackpacking trail as your bags are transported to your overnight stay.)

You stay overnight in simple accommodation in one of the original Moravian Mission villages. All the proceeds of the accommodation and guiding goes directly into the local community who hosts you. This is a real community tourism project. And one of the most uplifting in our experience.


Stay for a couple of nights at Cederberg Ridge. Then we transfer you up to the top of Pakhuis Pass in the Cederberg Reserve for the start of the trail. You are met by your guides from the CHR. Your overnight bags are taken by donkey cart whilst you enjoy a 12km (3 hour) hike to the charming village of Heiningvlei. The trail is fully inclusive and you are escorted by a local community walking guide. In the evening you enjoy a tasty home-cooked dinner. Breakfast provided by your hosts the following morning. You are welcome to take along a bottle of wine or some beers to enjoy with dinner.  

The following morning you enjoy a truly spectacular walk over Krakadouw Pass and down to the Boskloof valley. Here we will collect you and transfer you back to Cederberg Ridge. We recommend a final overnight with us but that's entirely optional.

Send us an enquiry if you’d like to add this to your stay.
