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 Cederberg.
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.
The altitude and mountain climate often cause a sudden drop in temperature, so come prepared with extra warm clothing.
Essential items for your trip includes:
- Extra warm clothing
- Field guide book (fauna & flora)
- No open fires in mountain
- Skottelbraai does not work in winter in the mountain
During snow time:
- Sunglasses & Sunblock
- Dry clothes & shoes
- Wellingtons (gumboots) & gloves
