Welcome to Matroosberg
The Matroosberg Private Nature Reserve is situated on the farm Erfdeel, 35 km from Ceres, South Africa. The reserve covers more than 1000 ha of mountain area, and reaches the Matroosberg Peak, which at the altitude of 2249m, is the highest in the Boland. The Matroosberg Peak is about 250m higher than Sneeuberg in the Cedarberg.
God created this beautiful mountain and we must conserve it. But to keep it under lock and key would be pointless. Our mission is conservation through utilization. We want to give more people the opportunity to walk in nature and experience the creation.
Matroosberg does it again..
Not only is Matroosberg the highest mountain in the Boland, with the highest 4x4 trail in the Western Cape. Matroosberg was also the host for the highest wedding, were the wedding couple did not use something like a hot air balloon ect.
The bride and groom were recorded saying, that is was a dream come true for them, for they both love the mountain so much and that God threw in a special surprise for them by covering the canyon in a cloud and connecting the two mountains...making it one...sounds a lot like a wedding vow!
