Temporary trail closures due to fire

The huge fire at the end of January 2013 caused extensive damage in the northern section of the Cederberg Wilderness controlled by Cape Nature and also in the northern parts of the Moravian Church area in the eastern Cederberg region.

Cape Nature has closed the paths in the northern section of the Cederberg Wilderness until further notice in order to evaluate the ecological situation. At this stage it is not known how long the closure will need to last.

As a result of this situation we will not be able to accept bookings for the following trails until further notice:
· Klein Krakadouw Trail.
· Groot Krakadouw Trail.
· Pakhuis Trail.
· Wupperthal Trail – Now reopened see here >>
· Cederberg 100 Trail.
So the only trails that we can offer clients at the moment are the four night Gabriel Trail and the Wupperthal Trail. This is a very unfortunate interruption of our activities, but we don’t seem to have any other option.

We extend our sincere sympathy to all those in the area who have suffered serious losses as a result of the fire.

Peter Hart.
Chairman.
