North of Cape Town, on the southern fringes of Namaqualand, lie the Cederberg Mountains.

The riot of colour that accompanies the coming of the Namaqua spring flowers does reach south into the Cederberg, although it is the stunning backdrop of dramatic mountains speckled with tenacious fynbos and cut through with tortuous passes that draws people here year-round.
