New Slingsby Cederberg Hiking map – Names update

The good people at Slingsby Maps are presently compiling, with the full cooperation of Cape Nature, a new hiking map of the Cederberg. 

  • Check the comments below for all the updates over the year(s)

“We are sure that there are many, many people with greater knowledge and experience of the Cederberg Wilderness than our own.  We would be delighted if you would share any expertise you may have with us so that together we can produce a map that is truly worthy of the area.

We have put up an interactive website page where people can make a real contribution (eg confirming names and locations of significant features).  If you can help please have a look at the “virtual books” of photographs. If you know of anyone with specific knowledge of the Cederberg you might like to forward the website link to them.
Your contributions will be acknowledged in the final product.
