The village of Cedarville is situated on the southern edge of the Drakensberg Mountains. It's name originates from the 2,000 metre Cedarberg Mountain which towers above it.

Cedarville is the gateway to three mountain passes which lead into Lesotho. Visitors can either travel to the breathtaking 185m high Katse Dam or see the 192 m Maletsunyane Waterfall which is Southern Africa's highest waterfall.

Also in the Cedarville area various 4x4 routes are on offer providing visitors the the opportunity to take in the magnificent mountain scenery. The nearby Mountain Lake Nature Reserve is a national heritage site consisting of rolling grasslands and pristine wetlands, ideal for bird watching. The area boasts an impressive total of 333 recorded species which includes the rare Rudd's lark, White winged Flufftail and the country's largest flock of juvenile wattled cranes. The area is also great for hiking.

During the wetter seasons, the 30 ha lake offers excellent trout fishing. Also nearby visitors will find that Umzimvubu River is a decent area to fish, with large Carp usually being caught.

Mount Currie Nature Reserve is also a favourite destination for birding, noted for it's bearded vultures.

Passing through Cedarville en-route to Matatiele in the Eastern Cape

Although Cedarville islisted on the websiteWhere to Stay as Drakensberg Surrounding Area, the Southern Drakensberg mountain range can be seenclearly some distance away from Cedarville itself. The little town of Cedarville is hardly worth a mention and a stopover in Cedarville accommodation lodgings should only be considered if you intend staying on the outskirts of Cedarville.......in the magnificent surrounding countryside.

If we had in fact had stayed in one of the Cedarville Guest Houses or bed and breakfasts, I'm sure we would have received the wonderful hospitality that most of the Eastern Cape lodgings are famous for.

A Cedarville Guest House or Guestfarm in the middle of winter......warm fireplace......glass of red wine........I think I could do that

We by-passed the town of Cedarville and besides thetypicallyinteresting little countryside church, there was nothing to see from a tourist point of view. So Long Cedarville - Next stop Matatiele.
