Swazi Kings
lots of the sport climbing is good

if you have some time have a look at Laughter of the Baboons, every pitch has some fun climbing, but is probably not a classic.

Rooiberg is a great venue, and Nuwerus is a great alternative Cedarberg base if Sandrif is booked. Apparently the trad is phenomenal but only sport climbed there so far. My experience: Give the "Red River Crag" a miss and spend your time at Rooiberg Mountain. Following routes were all fantastic (others besides but any recall the names, Tony's guide book available at the reception)
Classic single pitch sport routes which I remember :
15 Ethanol Aardvark goes quantity surveying
16 Book of Fun
21 Coolio
23 J & B Rare

Enjoy the trip
