Back to the Cedarberg

By 17th November 2018Blog

I was lucky enough to be invited on another hiking trip to the Cedarberg last month. We went back to the remote area near the village of Heuningvlei. There was a huge difference compared to last year’s trip in March when it was very dry. This time the landscape seemed much more alive as the streams were running strongly and there were plenty of flowers about.

From the Heuningvlei hut we climbed Middle Krakadouw and then went on to the Boontjieskloof hut.

We had quite a relaxed time and I managed to do two sketches.

Our last night was spent at the backpackers lodge at Heuningvlei where we enjoyed the hot showers and comfortable beds. Our dinner was prepared by ladies from the Heuningvlei community. It’s a picturesque old mission village and most of the houses have thatched roofs.

I took a lot of photos of the village in the evening and early morning.
