MATJIESRIVIER NATURE RESERVE
HOW TO GET TO THERE
The Matjiesrivier Nature Reserve is located approximately 300km from Cape Town. To get there, take the N7 highway north and continue along the N7 past Citrusdal. After 28km take the Cederberg/Algeria turn-off to the right. Follow this main gravel road for 17km until you reach the Algeria office. Once you reach the office, continue driving east for another 40km, over the Uitkyk pass and past the turn off to Kromrivier (take the left fork in the road, following the sign for ‘Ceres’). You will see the Stadsaal cave just a few kilometres into the reserve, while the office complex and Truitjieskraal turn-off are situated a little further along. It is important to note that 40km of this road is gravel and appropriate transport must be used.
